I looking for any informaion on my great grand father, William Pirtle Allen, who supposedly left Tn.abt. 1871 ..stowed away in the wagon train of "Captain" Carroll and wasn't discovered until too late to turn back. He came on to Tx. age 13, and lived with "Captain" Carroll for a while. He lived at various time in Navarro Co., Dallas Co., Tarrant Co., and possibly Ellis Co., Tx. He married Carrie Virginia Parks. On his tombstone, in Tarrant Co., Tx say he came from Love Co., Tn.There is no Love Co., Tn.? He never mentioned his family he left behind. At 13,he should have known family member names. Did any one have a Wm. Allen, age 2-3 in the 1860 census of Tn, or age 11-12 in the 1870 census of Tn. ..who disappeared from census after that? Very curious about this man.
