I am related to the Allens of Fountain/Harrison Counties in Indiana. John Preston Allen is in my family tree (posted on Rootsweb) but cannot identify the parents of my GGGrandfather, James Allen, Born 1818 in North Carolina.The 1820 census shows Hezekiah, John and Valentine Allen (all born NC) have moved to Harrison County, Indiana.John may be the father, Valentine and Hezekiah brothers.I believe James may be the son of Hezekiah (a son and other decendents are named Hezekiah). 1850 census of Fountain Cty, Ind, shows William V son of John P Allen and wife Mary (Crowder). I have Allens on both my grandfather's and grandmother's sides (they were both second and third cousins.)My GG Grandmother was a Crowder. Indiana marriage record shows Rebecca Crowder married Henry Teagarden 27 Nov 1856, Fountain County, Indiana.Then William Allen married Rebecca Teegarden 24 Jul 1862.
