Jeremiah (Jery) b. 1801 D. Aug 1865 was married to Mary Stribling in 1831. His Brother was William married to Julia Stribling (Mary's Sister). They lived in a double house and another building for their tailor and seamstress business. Their buildings were destroyed by Union Cannon and rifle fire in the battle of Fredericksburg Dec 13 1862. The buildings were n the 1st across the river from the canons. Elizabeth (Betty) my ggfather's sister cover Dorsey with her body and got scrapnel in her head. He head shook the rest of her life. Edwin Beck Allen was 20 later became a doctor in Georgetown. Fanny was Jery and Williams sister. I understand the Silvester Allen D, 1818 was there father married to Molly D.1843. George H. Allen was a Half brother to Marry Stribling. Richard Allen was a cousin. There is a reference that Jeremiah may have been their father. The family has always said the were related to the Ethan Allen line but I have not been able to find it. Hope this helps.
