I have been trying to confirm my William Allen connection. He was born 10 / 03 / 1749, in Albermarle Co. Va. He was married to Unknown ??, the first time and DOROTHY ( DOLLY ) BAILEYthe 2nd time, married12 / 16 /1807. They had 8 children::
Barbara (b. 1808 , George (b. 1810 , Jesse J. (b. 1813 Nelson Co. Va. ( my ggggrandfather.) Landon C. (b.1819 , Sally B. (b. 1822 , James M. (b. 1825 , Elizabeth M. (b.1828 , Andrew Jackson, (b. 1831.
My William Allen , according to records was a guard in the Revolutionary War at the Albermarle Barracks. His 2nd wife Dolly applied for his pension and was awarded it in 1866. He died either Feb. 27, 1838 or by other media March 6th, 1838.
I am trying to confirmhis parents. I have a possible connection,ROBERT ALLENb.1711 in Ulster Ireland who was married to a JANET or JANEHARE,or HAR or HAIR. They married in 1740 Hunterdon Co. New Jersey.William was their only child, I presume. Robert died in 1799, the info on Janet that I have is weak at best.
If anyone has a positive link to this or any family member listed here, Please contact me. Thanks, Jim Allen.
