Barbi, Thanks for the reply and I truly believe that you have come up with the right William B. Allen.I had nothing on him other than he lived in Bosque County and had a daughter named Barbara Allen.I have searched high and low for a couple of year for him and family and could find nothing that was any good.My line is from Barbara Allen, she married a guy by the name of John O'quin who was the nephew of Cynthia Ann Parker (famous because she was captured and lived with the Commanches') John's mother was Orlena Parker. The town they lived in was a small town called Iredell. I do not have my files with me so cannot tell you more but I will get the info and forward to you. It's interesting that William B. Allen ended up in Beeville, TX. I grew up there until I was in the 5th grade. I'll want to look at my notes because I think that William married Martha Ann Blue and was also married to a Rainey.I do have a death certificate showing that Barbara's parents were William Allen and Martha Blue. They were my grandparents.
Please send me any info you have, I would certainly appreciate it and I think that with what you gave me I can find more.
