John, I have a ancestor that was born in NC in 1821. Wondering if he might be related to the Allen's that you are researching. Charles Pinkney Allen b. Jan 1821 in NC. m. Sarah J ? abt 1843 in NC. b. 1825 in VA. They had at least 4 children in NC and then between 1848-1852 they moved to AR. where they had at least 3 more. Any information that you might have would be greatly appreciated.
