Looking for connections to either a Harriet or Matilda Allen. They are listed in the 1860 census as Harriet Adams age 23 and Matilda Adams age 6. Before the next census I believe Harriet marries a Bill Allen. They have James in 1865, John W. in 1867 and Tom in 1868.Bill is gone by 1870 and Harriet Allen (36) is listed in the household of Cyrus Robinson (51) as a housekeeper with Matilda Allen (17), James Allen (5), John W. Allen (3) and Thomas Allen (1). By the 1880 census Felix Allen, Essie Allen, Santa (my line), and Francis are added.I figured Cyrus was the father and Harriet the mother of my Santa.Got his death cert. and Cyrus is listed as father but Matilda is listed as his mother!Then in 1884 Matilda married Columbus Tate and moved to Grayson County.James married Rebecca Basham in 1895, Tom married Adaline Davis 1888 and Helen Livers Hardesty 1928, Essie may have married J.J. Chancellor, Santa married Anna McClellan and Francis married Myrtle Davis 1901.The 1900 census lists Harriet as widowed and living with James. It is all very confusing and any help would be appreciated. More info is available on my web page at www.bardstown.com/~jwheeler.
