Jesse Allen was born 17 June 1777 in VA. He married Nancy Walker 19 Oct 1797. This information is from the Jesse Allen family Bible records posted on USGENWEB Dekalb County TN. Jesse was son of Samuel Allen and Hannah Jopling based on Samuel's will. Samuel was the son of John Allen and Bethenia Neville, again based on John Allen's will. Also both Samuel Allen and Jesse Allen named a daughter Bethania.
A number of sources state John was the son of William Allen and Mary Hunt Minge. It seems cetain William and Mary did have son named John. However so far I have seen nothing to really establish this is the same John Allen.
Beyond William there seems to be little or no agreement on the Allen family. Half the sources state that Richard Allen married Elizabeth Walker and the other half say it was Robert Allen who married Elizabeth Walker.
Does anyone have information to establish the parents of the John Allen who married Bethania Neville (sometimes listed as Thomas)?
I have a copy of Samuel Allen's will and happy to share.
