Legal and financial papers of various types (1726-1885) make up the Alling Family Papers. Included are deeds, wills, lists of estates, quit claims, receipts, lists and maps of real estate holdings, and other related papers belonging to the Alling family of New Haven, Connecticut, and environs. The largest group of papers concerns Joseph Alling (1767-1842). Also included in the papers is a book of poetry belonging to Anna L. Johnson, of unknown date.
A partial genealogical chart of the Alling family is available in the repository. Further details may be found in A history and Genealogical Record of the Alling-Allens of New Haven, Connecticut by George P. Allen. The Alling Family Papers were purchased by Yale University in 1945 and 1950. Legal papers of Josiah Francis Clark, relating to his services in the Union Army (1859-1962) have been removed from this collection and transferred to the Civil War Collection, Manuscript Group Number 619.
