Hello Mr. Allen, My name is Felecia Thomas and I have recently begin searching my family history. By birth I am aLong and I was born in Spring Hope NC to Joyce Wiggins Long and Wilbert Long Jr. We are related to the Allens on both sides but more so on my mothers' side. I recently went to spring Hope to talk to my family about our history and I was fortunate enough to get information on the Allens. According to my 3rd cousin James Harrison Allen, this is some of the Allen history. His grandmother Sara who was a fullblooded Cherokee Indian, was born in Franklin Co. NC. She weighed 200lbs,and had hair to her calves. His Grandfather,Jake Wiggins, also a full blooded Cherokee Indian wasborn in Johnston Co. NC. He was 5ft. tall and had a hump on his back and was known as " the man with the hump on his back". His grandparents on his Daddy's side were Nelson, who was a Primitive Baptist Preacher, and Martha Allen. Their children were Charlie, George, Clifton, and Calvin Allen. Calvin Thomas Allen married Henrietta Wiggins(one of Sara and Jake Wiggins children-The others were Cornelius, Vince,Betty (who married Will Perry),Repsi, Dona,Mamie, Amos(pronounced with the same a as in apple),and Parse Wiggins). Calvin and Henrietta had 12 children ( one of which he could not remember),Seafair,James Harrison(also known as Rev. Allen),Martha who married a Hargrove, William Thomas, Jonathon, Calvin Thomas Jr., Henry, Sarah who married a Peterson, Bertha who married a Silver, and Gnora who passed at the age of 13yrs. Hope thi helps you or some of the other NC Allen searchers. If anyone has some information about these peple or their descedants please e-mail me.
