I am still searching for verification of the parents of William Burgess Allen, b. 1841, Caldwell Co. NC.Liested in 1850 census as Burgess with Ananias, Elizabeth, Eliza, &others;might be unwedded dau of Ananias or his dau-in-law - maybe husband dead or out of the area at time of this census. This Eliza was living NC at time of William's death, 1901 KY. Have no other information. If you know anything about this family, please share any information or ideas. Reply to my email.Thank you.
