Joseph ALLEN married Rhody ALDRIDGE before 1830, possibly in Alabama.They had at least 5 children:Joseph b 1830, Mary Ann "Polly" b bet 1832-1836, William, James, and Patience.They were listed in the 1850 Walker Co, Alabama census.
Rhody possibly died in Bossier Parish, LA prior to 30 Sept 1858 because her children signed documents that were recorded there giving up their rights to her property in favor of their father Joseph Allen.
Daughter Mary Ann married Johnson Ross in Bossier Parish 22 Sept 1852 so the Allen/Aldridge family must have been there prior to that date.Joseph Allen (Sr), his sons, and daughter Mary & her husband Johnson Ross moved to Sevier Co, AR by 1860.Joseph (Sr) married a second time and probably died in Sevier or Polk Co, AR.Whereabouts of daughter Patience is not known.
Can anyone help with information about Joseph Sr (parents, siblings, marriage place and date, death date, etc.)?
