I hope someone can help solve this puzzle. A Sylvanus Allen bought 100 Acres of land in 1745. He resold it to Taylor in 1746 in Richmond Co and then disappears. A Jeremiah Allen abt 1770 witnesses a will of Henry Allen also witnessed by Wagganor and disappears. I believe Jeremiah m. Betty? and Sylvanus m. Sarah. We are guessing they are the ancestors of Sylvanus Allen m. Mary/Molly of Essex Co. Sylvanus d. abt 1815 and Mary/Molly d. 1843 in Spotsylvania Co. She names 4 Gouldman grand daughters in her will. I would love to find out the fathers name. I know we are connected to the Taliaferro Stribling, Taliaferro , & Washington Lines.
