Seeking contact with descendants of John Mebane ALLEN (1823NC-1894AR), who migrated from Alamance Co., NC to Hempstead Co., AR in 1852.He had 3 wives, with children as follows: by wife Elizabeth H KIRKPATRICK (1827NC-1853AR): Samuel Alexander, Ezekiel Currie, John Calvin (lived in Hope) and William G ALLEN;
by wife Martha FOUNTAINE (1825AR-1860AR): Matthew F and James Henderson ALLEN
and by wife Agnes Ann LLOYD (1831AR-1924) Eliza Gamble "Lida", Joseph Lloyd, Sarah Jane "Sally" and Annie Elizabeth ALLEN.
One of Annie Elizabeth's nieces was Elizabeth WHITE, who married T.H. FURMAN and lived in Abbeyville, SC.In 1974, Elizabeth compiled and published a set of letters sent to John M ALLEN, mostly from his friends in Alamance Co., including his nephew (my grandpa) Alex J. THOMPSON.
Other than Elizabeth, the only grandchildren of John M. ALLEN I know about are Lelia, Vie and Cora ALLEN, who I think are children of John Calvin ALLEN.These names were written beside faded family snapshots, taken about 1902.
