Hi ALLEN researchers.I am trying to connect my Charles ALLEN with the Virginia ALLENs and back from there.Here is what I know abt Charles & his line to me.
Charles ALLEN was probably born in VA but could have been SC in abt 1799. in the late 1720's he married a Mary WITHERS from S.C. believed daughter of Francis WITHERS of Georgetown, SC. Between 1830-32 they may have resided in the area of White Sulphur Springs or Sweet Springs VA/WVA.In 1832 they relocated to MO finally making their home in Monroe Co. Their issue: Elizabeth ALLEN Charles ALLEN George Mosby ALLEN James Samuel ALLEN (Judge)
James Samuel ALLEN b. 9/20/1842 MOd.1/20/1927 MO was my ggrandfather.James Samuel m. Laura Frances RAGLAND b. 3/24/1847 MO d. 10/11/1929. Their issue:

Mayna Forrest CHANDLER Ruby ALLEN b. 6/18/1877 MO d. 9/15/1954 Anna Louise ALLEN 5/13/1881 MO d. 12/12/1964 James Lucien ALLEN 5/13/1881MO 11/20/1947 Charles Mosby ALLEN b. 9/01/1883 MO d.3/07/1971
Frederick Buckner ALLEN & Mayna Forest CHANDLER had the following issue:
Virginia Chandler ALLEN (my mother) Mary Frances ALLEN I'll stop there but wanted to provide the above in the event someone out there is also descended from the same Charles ALLEN. Any help in connecting Charles to his parents and beyond would be greatly appreciated.Sid Telford
