Kelley, Thanks for the input. I did find a record of pension for a William Allen from Cass County.I have looked at the 1860 census several times and have always disallowed him as the one I am looking for. However, I do think there is a slight possibility.He was married to a Martha in Cass County. She applied for pension in about 1890. In 1870 my William was married to a Martha Ann in Bosque County. I suppose it is possible that my William divorced and remarried my Martha Ann in Bosque county.The William in Cass County did disappear from censuses in Cass County after the 1860 Census.
