Yes...my 4th GG father John Peters married a Quaker, Rachel Pownall. He, I don't believe he to be a Quaker. They were married in a Church of England on May 19, 1779 in Hunterdon County, NJ. Although, some of their children were raised as Quakers.
Arthur, do you have an exact location of where these Allen's/Peters/Shinn's lived in Frederick County, VA?
I am co-editor for a Peters Allied Families Genealogical Quarterly. Of which, I will forward to you by email September 2000's Issue. Lot of info and speculations.
Do you have more info on these Peters or Allied families you can share. This would be great!! I know there is an ALLEN connection somewhere.
