I'm hoping someone will have information/names of the 9 children born to Richard Allen, b 1780, married to Sarah Johnson 4/5/1805.Following is a posting from Migrations.com: Richard married Sarah ^Sally^ Johnson in Wilkes Co., NC 8 April 1805. In 1828 they moved with their 9 children with 27 other families near Milton, Wayne Co., IN. Sarah died in 1831. Richard married a second time to Elizabeth ^Betsey^ Foster, 13 Feb 1832, and moved to Fayette Co.,IN. Elizabeth died in childbirth in 1832. Upon Richard's return to NC to sell his property there, he met and married for the third time to Elizabeth Wood, 1834. They moved in 1845 to Madison Co., IN.
I'm particularly looking for information on John W. Allen and thinking he may have some link to Richard.I believe John was born in VA, possibly NC and migrated from this area to OH or IN.John's son, William Mitchell, b 1856 in Potosi, MO is my grandfather.He told my father he had relatives who "shot up the courthouse" which is why I'm looking for a connection to the Hillsville Allens, or those related in that area.
Thanks for any help you might offer. Astrid TNMamaDawg@AOL.com
