Hi, As many children as Isaac & Frances had, there should be many people out there who are related.Then Isaac & his 2nd wife, Margaret Poplett, had more kids, too.
Isam & Martha, Samuel, William, Lillie, Effie & me.That's my direct line.I still don't know if Isaac's father is John.I have visited the cemetery where Isaac is buried, but couldn't find his grave.It must have broken or something because of age.Martha's father, John, is buried near Peoria, Illinois, but I haven't gone to that cemetery.I've been to Isam & Martha's graves.Several years ago, the stones were broken, but last summer when I visited the cemetery, the stones had been repaired.I feel like thanking someone, but I don't know who was responsible for fixing the stones.
Where did Elizabeth & Cary live after they were married?Most of the family seemed to head for Kentucky, at least for awhile, then on to Indiana.My branch went on to Iowa, at least many of them.
I sent for Isam's service record in the War of 1812 & it was sure a waste of $17.00.I got 2 pages that didn't tell me anything of importance.
Several years ago I corresponded with Allen Armstrong who knew a lot about the Allens.I can't find him on the message board anymore.He, too, was stuck trying to learn who Isaac's parents were.Maybe we're at the end of the road.I hope now, but it's sure a "brick wall".
Please let me know what you would like to know.I can't guarantee I have it, but I'll sure try to find it.
