Thank you, Norman, for your post.I don't think this Rebecca is mine since I know my ALLENs were in Lamar County for the 1860 census & your post seems to indicate your ALLENs were living elsewhere at that time???.
Also, there were brothers but not a Robert that I know of.Your post says your Rebecca is b. 1837 & her brother, Robert, was b. in 1866.Was Robert maybe a half-brother?This just seems to be too many years between them - 29 years difference - to have the same Mother.
Actually, all I have for my ALLENs are the initials as listed on the 1860 census so I was just trying to connect one of my ALLENs with that name/age/place.
I'll keep your post as there is the same name, general area & time.Thank you again for posting.
