Thanks for responding. I would appreciate any and all help, no matter how little.
John Allen was born in the 1800's, died in 1918(?). I understand he was a farmer in Nash County. He moved from Johnston County(?)I understand,where he had a first wife and family, to Nash County where he married Lourinda Pulley and had a new family. That is about all I know about him.
Lourinda Pulley had a mother named Dora Pulley, I understand the father may have had the surname of Richardson. Lourinda had a halfbrother named Charlie Pulley. Perhaps there were other halfbrothers or sisters. She was born in the 1800's and died in Nash County in 1967.
John and Lourinda had 5 boys (one was my father Leamond Onnie Allen, born 1910/1911, died 1967) and 2 girls.
The family church is Clifton Chapel Disciples Church in Spring Hope in Nash County, North Carolina.
