I have a copy of a letter written by C.S. Allen of Marshall Co., MS in 1853 to my 3rd gr. grandfather, James M. Allen of Webster Co., MO.This letter lists the father of C.S. Allen as William S. Allen b: Halifax Co. Va. d. 5 Aug 1840; mother of C.S.Allen was Amey ? b. Halifax Co. Va d. 30 Aug 1839.Evidentially my ancestor had written to C.S. wondering if they were related.I have names and death dates for brothers and sisters.My Allen family once lived in Madison Co., AL and later moved to TN and MO.
