During the Civil War, James Allen was evidently under the command of Capt. Reuben Henry Wilbur, while at Ellis Ford just after the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.
Recently I inherited items from our family trunk in which I came across many papers with Reuben Henry Wilbur's name. Therefore, I'm researching Reuben Henry Wilbur to see how he may be related to our family.
While at the same time, I ran across a few drawings pertaining to the Battle of Gettysburg and Ellis Ford with James Allen's name on one. I'm not sure of his rank or any information of him, but would like to know who this man is. He was a very talented artist when it came to detailing in these drawings.
If anyone has any information pertaining to James Allen and / or his detailed works, please contact me.
