What I have on the Allen family, but not all proven, is as follows.Archibald Allen b.abt. 1698, d. in King George Co. VA 1762.He had about 10 children from 3 wives.I believe I descend from son James, who married Mary Stamps.James died in Culpepper Co. Va in 1758 and William Allen was b. 1758.Thus James left a widow, Mary, who later m. James ShacklefordJames' only other child was Elizabeth. William Allen m. Frances Pepper, and they had 10 chlidren. They moved to Mason CO KY before William S. Allen was born in 1795. I do not have records on the other children of Archibald or William, although William had a son James, b.1783.
