OKAY . Here's a new one for you all. robert McDowell born April 05,1826 married Carrie Ester Allen who was born july 14,1835. She is my gg grandmother. They had 6 children. They settled in Louisiana but,from where is a mystery though there was talk that they came from Scotland . There is no clue to where,if they indeed ,came over as to what port or ship they came on and arrived in. I started a family tree and couldn't go anywhere with McDowell.So I thought I would try my hand with Allen.
Any and all suggestions as to how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.
