If my info is right, Benjamin Allen is the s/o Daniel Allen and wife, Anne Harrison. I am descended from Anne's brother and father, Benjamin Harrison I & II. I beleive these are children of Benjamin Allen, including his daughter Betty m. Richard Tebbs, Wife Betty (elizabeth _ Allen), younger children named Joanna, Frances, Joyce, Benjamin H. William and Polly. Obviously some were underage and needed a guardian, and I believe chose thier mother, Elizabeth "Betty" Allen.I have her maiden name as Elizabeth Hill, but it's from a long while ago and I don't have a source.
Ann Harrison is the d/o Benjamin Harrison m. Lockey Priscilla Cary.Ben I died 1761 cumberland Co VA. He had children, Lockey, Cary, Benjamin (mine), Elizabeth, Mary, Martha, Priscilla, Rebecca,and Anne m. Daniel Allen.
Daniel Allen and Ann(e) Harrison had the following children; Priscilla, Frances, Moses, Anne, Sarah, Benjamin (this instance), Cary, William, Patsy, and Elizabeth.Thus the naming patterns continued.
