My current target is Sarah D. ALLEN who was born ca 1789 and she arrived in Randolph County, MO. about 1836 from Albemarle County, Virginia. She is listed on the 1860 Mo Slave Schedule as owning 19 slaves. It is not known if she was born or married an ALLEN. There is one other ALLEN (Joseph) on the 1860 Mo Slave Schedule. Missouri Land Patent records show that a John ALLEN was granted land on 11/02/1837 in Randolph County (#8307). It is not known if Sarah is connected to either Joseph or John.
Circumstantial evidence now suggests my gg grandmother's maiden name may have been ALLEN (and possibly a slave of Sarah's). Her given name was Charlotte. Robert WASHINGTON and Charlotte may have been married (legally) on 12 Feb 1866 in Randolph County, Mo. My task is to rule... in or out..... Sarah D. ALLEN as a focus of further research.
