Hi Eugene, My husband's 2nd great-grandfather was an Abner Allen & mother named Judy/Judah according to 1850/60/70 censuses of Cleveland Co. NC. Abner & Judy's son Walter A. Allen was my husband's great-grandfather and we have his family.Now, is it possible your Abner and ours are connected?I believe so!
Census records show our Abner's birth as ca. 1823.Abner is listed in the 1850 Cleveland Co. NC census along with Clarke, David, Elbert, James, Larkin, Rufus & William, who are all more than likely connected.Believe David is the Daddy of them all.His wife Elizabeth - found marriage for a David Allen & Elizabeth Champion, but can't locate my notes and other census material just now.
We know little about our Allens...was Susan a 2nd wife to your Abner?Any help will be appreciated and maybe there are other NC Allen researchers who know about this line?
