I ran across something that may help. Its a marriage license dated May 27 1943, Scioto Co., OH, between a Josh Allen and Martha Brown Culver.(Martha is part of my Brown line) They both had been m twice before. Josh, said he was 82 on Jan 22 1943.Martha was 65 on Aug 12 1942. Josh was a farmer, b KY, living in Sciotoville, OH.His parents were Addison Allen and Nancy Wheeler. I located a James Addison Allen and Nancy Jane Wheeler m Oct 8 1840 in Scioto Co., OH.James was b Culpeper, VA 1826, and d Greenup Co., KY 1868. Gencircles has a posting for this family, and I do not see a Josh Allen, instead there is a Jonah Allen in the age slot.....?? Josh, maybe a nickname?I don't know....BUT, that is the name on the license. According to the same posting, Fielding Allen was James Addison Allen's father, and he named his first son, Fielden C. Allen (b 1841, Greenup Co., KY). Another son was named John F. Allen, b 1852, KY.
I hope I have helped in some way.I do not have a connection to this family other that Martha Brown Culver m Josh Allen. Martha was a dau of Moses & Marm Brown Brown.Moses was a brother to my Great gfather, William A. Brown. Blessings, Beverly
