Hello,I'm looking for information about the Allen family in Texas.
Jesse and Susannah Jackson Allen and their sons John, Burtis, and Jesse J., and their daughters Ann and Emily,were early settlers of the Republic of Texas.The family came first to San Augustine County in about 1839 from Alabama.
John Allen (his first wife died)and his children John E, Jesse E. Ethan Thomas and H.W., later moved to Houston County.John married Margaret Hatten in Cherokee County and their children were Francis McKnight and Margaret Caldonia.
I descend through H. W. (Bill)and Arra Minta Grounds Allen.
Would love to share information with others researching this early Texas family.
