Just recieved the following info from a cousin who got it from a journal kept by one of our aunts. David C. Allen (b. 4/15/1812) m. Agnes DeMay (b. 6/10/1810 in France) m. 4/26/1832. they had 5 children - my ancestor was Benjamin Franklin Allen (b.12/6/1834) m. Mary Molly Strong (b. 10/14/1838) m.7/22/1855. they had 7 children. my grandfather was James Lawrence Allen (b. 5/4/1864 - near new madrid, mo.). m. Ella Jane Morris (b. 3/25/1872) m. 12/13/1887 they had 14 children, 9 lived to adulthood one being my father Charles Mathew Allen (b.8/19/1906) I don't know how factual this information is, if anyone can confirm any of this it would be of great help.
