I am trying to track down the lineage of John ALLEN (1760-1845) who married Ann Verlindia PYLES (1758-1832) in Prince George?s County, Maryland on 29 Oct 1781. I can push back the PYLES line, but am having trouble connecting the ALLENs. In looking at the children?s names (and middle names) I?m wondering if there may be some prior linkages through them. Cases in point:
John and Ann had Marceline and Walter O. ALLEN.
Marceline (1796-1870 in PG County, MD) married William Henderson PYLES (1783-1850, Washington, DC) and had (among others)John Vinton PYLES, Samuel Chambers PYLES, and Francis Benton PYLES. These middle names are more commonly family names, but I don?t see connections with VINTON, CHAMBERS, or BENTON. Anyone have some links?
Walter O. (1804-1880 in PG Co., MD) married Sarah Ann PYLES (1812-1872 in PG Co., MD) and had (among others) Alfred Collens ALLEN, and Francis Lemuel ALLEN.
