Thomas M ALLEN was born in Tx.His family evidently bucked the migration trend westward and moved East to Tn.His father was born in Virginia and his mother was born either in Md (as the 1860, 1870, and 1880 census reads) or in Tn (as the 1900 census states)The 1900 census lists Thomas M ALLEN as a widower and still living in Wilson County, Tn.His wife's name was Narcissa Williams b1835 in Tn and his children were named Willie, Samuel B, Ma;vera. Nancy, Laura A, Henry Marcus, Mary and Eliazbeth. I would like to know who his parents were, where he was born and any other details you may have. I don't even know where he is buried.He raised his family in the Norene community of Wilson Co and he was a carpenter although he farmed a good bit too. I would appreciate any assistance.
