I am having problems with this family,I cannot follow the line from Elizabeth BRADLEY, Robert ALLEN to; ALLEN, Addison, b. 3 Jul 1823 - 1 Mar 1890 to Freeland, Sarah D., to:ALLEN, A. Perry "A.P." b 14 Jul 1851 - 7 Oct 1928, wife as;Columbia Ann fowler ALLEN, b.6 Feb 1853 - 30 Jan 1927.
Question:My Robert ALLEN first wife was Elizabeth ukn.. B. ALABAMA, they had child born abt. 1849 William Thomas ALLEN. (Census 1850 Wayne co.TN). Seems that his mother must have died because by 1860,(Wayne County,Tn.) Robert was married to Sarah BRADLEY, they had 5 children plus William Thomas, by 1861 Robert enlisted in the Civil War. I do not know what happened to him after that and am waiting papers from the NARA on him.
Sarah ALLEN WAS IN the 1880 Census of Maury County,TN.,as a widow, age 48. No mention of the boys of Robert's, only two grown daughters living with her, and two grandchildren.
If you know of this family I would appreciate any information.Just trying to get the children with the right parents in the right place at the right time.
