Trying to locate info on Lafayette Allen bn 1848 in Brown CO, Indiana. He had a son, William, in 1879 in Iola, Kansas and two other sons, George O. and Ora V. there also. Then on to Eureka Springs, ARK and then Haigler, Nebraska in 1899. He spent his final years in Wray, Yuma County, Colorado and died there in 10 sept 1918.
In 1869 he married Sarah E. Cannatsey, maybe in Indiana or Kansas, and in 1891 in Carroll Co, Arkansas he married Sarah E. (Ellis) Main. He may have had a marriage before Cannatsey.
As a child I find Lafayette Allen 11yrs living in the h/h of John W. Cochran in the 1860 Indiana, Johnson Co, census. I dont know the connection, if any, to John W. Cochran.
It has been suggested that Lafayette Allen is the son of Thomas L. Allen and Elizabeth ?.
