Thanks Steven. You wouldn't happen to have any information on Allen would you? I can't seem to find anything. The note on Arter and Elisha was a shot in the dark. I can't find them anywhere. Thanks again for your help!!! As for Mahala, she married Samuel Smith in 1847 and they had children and I am a descendant of their children Lucy who married Clayburn Adkins and Harvey who married Elizabeth Adkins. Those intermarriages, but it does make it easier to track the ancestors! I have no clue as to what happened to Allen.
