I have been away from genealogy for about 2 years but would now like to resume my search. I have been totally unsuccessful in finding anything about my ggrandfather, Jonathan Allen. I have received help especially from Mariah Allen and Joyce House-Reeves for which I am thankful. In 1845 he Married Rhoda Riley. Three different censuses show his birthdate as 1817 in Indiana but other data indicate 1822 in Perry County Ky. Also there has been some indication of a Virginia birth place and maybe even NC. I recently came across a post on Ancestry.com that said he was born in Va, moved to In and then to Ky. It also said his parents were Joseph Allen and Elizabeth (Cadwallader) Allen. Joseph was born in Bedford County, Va in 1794. My search then revealed Joseph and Elizabeth were married in 1815 in Greene County, Oh which is near Dayton and Joseph died in 1878 in Hendricks County, In which is west of Indianapolis.These dates and migration routes are consistent with A birthdate of 1817 in In for Jonathan. However I can find no direct evidence of this. Does anyone have anything that might help clarify this conflicting info. I would be most appreciative of any help I could get. Additional info: Joseph's parents are listed as Jackson Allen and Sarah Bond. Also Jonathan's first wife was Mary Turner married about 1836 and she apparently died in 1846.
