Nelson G. Allen & wife Sarah Jane Young moved their family from S.C. to VanZandt Co. Tx. about 1846.One of their 6 ch. was William Alexander Allen, he was married 4 times.
According to one of his biographies he was married to Ann Thompson and had 1 child (I don't know when or where) and then she died.
He went to Okla Terr. or Indian Terr. and married Native American Emma Boudinott and had two daughters, Nina (m. Robert Springer) and Meda (m. Samuel Berry).His 2nd wife died leaving him with the 2 daughters, 1 an infant and 1 a toddler
He returned to Van Zandt Co. Tx. and then married my gr. gr. grandma, a widow with at least 3 children,her name was Elizabeth Howard McDow (1) Smith (2) Davis in Nov. 1880.One of the biographies I read said they had 2 sons, one was named William Arthur Allen, I am not certain of the others name but heard it may have been DeWitt Allen.She died in 1891.
Dr. William Alexander Allen then m. Mary Helms, I do not recall how many children he had with her.
I would really like to locate the two sons he and Elizabeth "Lizzie" McDow had.Any help would be appreciated and I would be happy to exchange information.
