Re: Joseph William Allen

The Allens were living in Wood County, TX in 1880, and these are the children listed in their household:
Joseph W. age 12
Walter H. age 7
Minnie M. age 4
Calvin age 1
In the 1910 Bowie County census Alex (age 71) and Frances (age 62) Allen have a son living with them named Ross, age 18.
There is, of course, no 1890 census and I haven't found them in the 1900 census (although I don't know if I've searched the soundex for that year for the Allens).
