I just very recently became aware there were such a mixed up bunch of Allens in Fayette Co in those days. A friend who knew I was searching for Aaron And Permelia Jane gave me a book which is about two inches thick that was supposed to be my linage from Elijah, son of Aaron and Permelia back into New York to John Alewin/Allen.Well, after I posted the inquiry to try to locate family members of Ggrandpa Elijah I have been informed the info I was given was a bunch of poppycock.
My info showed Aaron's father as Elijah and I've been informed it's not Elijah at all.It is Adam b. 1754 who married Nancy Gardner.I didn't put full faith in the info I had been given and had intended on verifying stuff rather than just accept it as fact.
The one thing I am sure of is my Great Grandfather was Elijah, son of Aaron and Permelia Jane Garner.I know that because it is recorded in the 1865 marriage record of Elijah and Columbia Grogan in the courthouse of Barbour Co., WV.
I have info coming from a descendant of William, brother of my Ggrandpa Elijah.Once I get it sorted out I'll know a little more definitely than right now.
I'm grateful for input from those who have valid proven info to share.
