Ann, I am searching for the parents of William Gray Allen who married Elizabeth Jane Horton in 1867 in Newton Co., Mo. after the civil war. Family stories say he was b. in Ireland and came to the USA with a brother Samuel, and he fought for the Confederates, his brother for the Union, and they never saw each other again. I had found your Wm Gray Allen in Tn and in Ark, and know there was a son William. Do you have any information on where he went? Wondering if the stories might have missed a generation and might they be connected?
