I don't know who Phillip's parents were, but I think you may have discovered my great, great, great, great grandfather's, Reuban Allen's father. Reuban was born in 1772. Because the boundaries of the territories were all so different then I'm not sure if it was in North or South Carolina. I believe he lived in what is now Lincoln and Catawba Counties of North Carolina. He had 12 to 13 children, Levi Allen being my great, great, great grandfather and one of his sons Henry Allen, My great,great grandfather fought in the Civil War (Confedrate) and died from injuries sustained at Gettysburg. Two of his brothers died there as well. He was survived by my great, great grandmother, Rachel El Vira Edwards and her their three sons of whom one was my great grandfather, John Webster Allen. They lived on Indian Land about 20 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina which is in Meckenburg County. I don't think this is just a coincidence.
