Just thought I would let you know that I have be diligently searching for answers to mine and Sue's questions that were raised from the information we saw in Mrs. Whites book.
Today we found another book titled "Ancestry of John Barber White and his descendents" It was written by Almira Larkin White and Published by John Barber White in 1913.
This John Barber White is the husband of Emma Siggins White.
And low and behold Mrs. Almira White has a page on the family of Malcolm Allen in her book that is ALMOST word for word what Mrs. Emma Siggins White has in hers.Key word being ALMOST. First Almira states that the earliest known ancestor of the Sarah Ann Allen who married Samuel Scott Walker (Emma's grandparents) was Malcolm, and makes no mention of him being a son of James Allen that married Margaret Anderson, which is validated by the Autobiography of Allen Trimble, who was once Governor of Ohio, (son of Jane Allen Trimble, Grandson of James Allen and Margaret Anderson). Also for Malcolm she only refers to his wife as "Mary".But I do think it was Cunningham, as Malcolm Allen witnessed James Cunningham's will as a release of dowry to Mary Cunningham. She does mention that he was a witness of the will of Col. George Poage, but does not call him a brother in law. But the thing that will make you the happiest is.... In the line up of Malcolm's children, in which MRS ALMIRA LARKIN WHITE states she got the information from OSCAR PYLE,It makes NO MENTION of the name of Hugh Allen's wife being Jane Turk. Which I really doubted to be true from the start.But in your own words you said you do not go by someone else's research.I have spent days looking at records and going through my books.One of which IS Tinkling Springs, Headwater of Freedom.
I must admit, I was offended at the position and the manor in which you responded to a simple question. Especially the one you sent directly to my email address.I would have thought that you being an attorney would have made you want to investigate "new evidence" if for no other reason, than to do what Sue and I were trying to do, "Prove it wrong". And because of that I pushed the issue to make you pull out what you had to prove your beliefs.Maybe that was wrong.I apologize. We are all working hard to try to sort out these Augusta Co. Allen's, and I believe that there is so much mis information mixed in with the good that it may never be completed.Especially if people get upset when someone else questions why they have stated something.
