I have seen a number of older messages concerning various Jones Allen. Perhaps the following will help someone. Meredith Allen's will, probrated in Henry County, Va in 1829 names children: William Betsy Darling Omi (dau) Gilley Coleman Meredith (another document gives middle initial "B.") Grandson Jones Allen (son-in-law Henry Lawrence to be exec.) An entry in accts. current states that money was due Jones Allen "this day" (Oct. 23, 1837) it being the day he was 21 years old.
