I am looking for the parents of John Birdet Allen who married Rachel Mahala Mead in Polk Co., Mo.
John B. Allen, my gg-grandfather, was born in 1850 and died in 1904. The only actual records I have seen are John & Rachel's marriage record and an entry in the 1880 Polk Co, Mo Census. According to the 1880 Census his father was born in Indiana and his mother was born in Missouri.
I am looking for the county John was born in, the cemetery where he is buried and his parents names. I have information on Rachel Mead line.
