I'm descended from Thomas Allen, who died in 1843 in Smyth County, VA. His wife was Elizabeth (Snider) Crow and they were married in 1821. They had the following children: Robert Batey Allen, Samuel Green Allen, William Townsend Allen, and Mary M. Allen. William died young; Robert B. (my great-great-grandfather, died in 1896); Samuel G. died in 1856; I have no other record of Mary M. Robert B. Allen married Paulina Jane Killinger in 1849. She was the daughter of Michael Killinger and Susanna Morris. I'm seeking researchers who know something about my Thomas Allen or this branch of the Allen family. Family stories say this Thomas Allen came from either South Carolina or North Carolina. I have little or no info about him, though.
