Bob, would you kow if Samuel and Ellen Scales Allen had sons named Alexander born between 1800 - 1810 and/or a son named James born in 1813?I've not been able to find a family listing of Samuel and Ellen's.
Alexander lived in Guilford County in 1830 was listed on the same census page as the Stephen Rook "Ruke" family.No other Allen family lived in Guilford at the time.
James married Eleanor Rook in October 19, 1833 and bought land in Guilford. Wanting to find father of James.
As you can see I'm really reaching.Samuel Alexander Allen should have a son named Alexander and surely James was kin to them all.
So appreciate your help as gggrandfather James has been giving me fits for all too long.
