In one of Mr. Childress's messages, he writes that a brother of someone of Preston ALLEN or Preston ALLEN married a Nancy BOYD, was a sister to Lucy BOYD, in Franklin Co., VA. Maybe this is something to look into too.
I haven't seen the marriage of William ALLEN to a Rachel KENDRICK. What county and state was it from? And what year? I found a William ALLEN m. Rachel KEERAN, 8 Mar 1802, Shenandoah Co., VA.
This is all interesting to me too to make sure I get my husband's ancestors right.
I have children for Preston ALLEN and Nancy ( _?_ );
1. Burwell ALLEN b. abt. 1851.
2. Dolly ALLEN b. abt. 1854, m. Daniel MIDKIFF.
3. Valeria Maria ALLEN b. abt. 1855, m. Harrison M. HARMON.
Then a child of Preston ALLEN and Winifred PAULEY, named Andrew ALLEN, b. 1865, m. Mary Susan MIDKIFF, sister of Daniel MIDKIFF.
I found Preston ALLEN and family in 1860 Kanawha Co., (W)VA census, # 126, Kanawha Co., Court House district. Winifred was listed in household then.
Also there was another Preston ALLEN who moved to the midwest and was in the 1850 census indexes of the LDS. Sorry that I can't think of the state right now.
