I am looking for information on the ALLENs in our family.I have a lot of missing informaiotn and I would very much appreciate anyones help in at least pointing me in the right direction.This is what I have:
Morris ALLENb. (?) d. (?) married: Rachel BISHOPb. (?) d. (?)
they are presumed to have been in Clay co., KY and/or there abouts.
They may have had more children, but we only know of this one daughter:
"William Kelley came to Teges Kentucky with his parents from Tennessee, in ox drawn covered wagons." (From my grandmother's memo book, Aug. 11, 1966)
Both William Kelley & Aley ALLEN are burried on the point of a hill on the Kelley farm, near Teges, in Clay co., KY.
My grandmother, Zinnia Catherine Quinsenberry, made a trip out to Kentucky in August of 1966 to see where her mother's people had come from and to do some digging in the local census records.Of the Kelley farm's location, in her memo book she wrote this:"The Kelley farm is in Big Sexton Creek- near Saddler Gap-We go through the Kelley Cut on the road from Manchester to the Kelley farm." (Aug. 11,1966)
She used her little memo book sort of like a trip diary and it has several interestiong things on the Kelleys.
I have more information on this Kelley line if anyone is interested too.
Thank you for any help you can render me, or just point me in the right direction.
