Please help end my confusion with the different Young Drewry Allens.
One was the son of Drewry Allen and Elizabeth Yarborough who went to Pike Co GA. This Y.D. Allen died in 1848 in Pike Co GA.Another was the son of Stokes Allen and Susannah Fooshee. He supposedly was a lawyer, planter and moved to Holmes Co MS. I have also seen another Y.D.Allen listed as son of Josiah Allen and Elizabeth Browning. This Y.D. is said to have died in Claiborne Parish, LA.
In looking at marriage records for Pike Co the following are listed: 1832 - Young D. Allen and Margaret Reed (Josiah's son?) 1834 - Young D. Allen and Sarah Ann Gale/Sale (Stokes' son?) 1834 - Young D. Allen and Sarah Ann Gillispie (Is this the same Sarah Ann in both cases?)
Now, my question is:who is the Y.D. Allen on the 1860 census for Lafayette, Jefferson Parish, LA (p.208) with the following family?
Y.D. Allen 40, lawyer, N.C.;S.A.H. 33, GA;A.C.(m) 14, GA;C.S.(f) 12, GA;C.M.(m) 10, Miss.;C.H.(m) 10, Miss.;Y.P.(m) 2, LA. (I believe C.S. to be Camilla Sanford Allen who later married Walter R.Vreeland. In 1850, Walter also lived in Lafayette.)
This Y.D. appears to be the son of Stokes Allen, but would love to have some documentation. Also, what was the last name of his wife, Sarah Ann?
