William Allen(b.1835) (my great granddad) married Susan Q.Nelson (b.1838 in Shelby Co.Ind.) in Putnam Co.,Indiana. 5 children were born to them in INDIANA : Charles (b.1859),Aylette R.(b.1861),Alvin Aaron(b.1863),Tunis Q. (or I.)(b.1864) andJames R.(b.1867). Charles was born in Bainbridge,Putnam Co.,Indiana. All five may have been born in this local. They show to have had five more children born in MO. (according to the U.S.Federal Census of Kansas,1880). Thanks for any help, Dave.
