Allison Everett Pearson was born in the Mount Algor area north of Miles in 1886, the son of Theodore A. and Lucinda Pearson. His grandfather, Thomas, was a Civil War veteran. He received his education in the Miles area. At an early age he became a bookkeeper at Bellevue's Dorchester and Hughey Lumber Yard. His father ran a grain and mill business in Miles. Later he became a member of a group which purchased the mill that eventually would be known as the John L. Franks Co., a lumber and grain business. Mr. Pearson was a principal partner from the standpoint of finance and management and increased his holdings through the years. He did not marry and left no immediate survivors. He left nearly $1 million to charities, including Pearson Memorial Center at the Jackson County Fairgrounds.(From the Biography of Allison E. Pearson by Judge Arthur F. Janssen)
