Jean, thanks for your kind offer.I am trying to find the parents of my grandfather, William Burgess Allen b. Caldwell County 1841.Believe the Burgess Allen, 10 yrs old, listed with Ananias Allen in 1850 census is the most likely to be my grandfather. He left NC - joined Confederate Army in KY 1861/2. In 1901 KY death record of William B., his mother is listed as still living in NC. Maybe an obituary for her?Anything you can do to help me in this longtime search, will be greatly appareciated.If you would like to contact me further, please respond email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
