Does anyone know of the Allanson surname connecting to an Elkins family?John Elkins was born in 1776 in Henry Co Va. He married Elizabeth Stevens in Franklin Co Va Sept 24, 1794 and was probably in Surry Co. NC in 1800. He was in Buncombe Co. NC from 1810 to 1830. His believed son, Allanson Elkins is found in the 1850 census of Yancey Co. NC. Both men have died by 1860. With Allanson as a given name, it would appear possible that an Allanson or Allison individual may have intermarried with the John Elkins family.
