I am looking for where James T. Allen, born about 1830, married to Lucy Ann Williams, also born about 1830, went after the 1870 census in Watertown, Wilson County, TN
I have tried every spelling trick and first name only trick and more through Heritage Quest Online and Ancestry.com to find them in a 1880 census.No such luck.I try to imagine they all died or the girls married and Lucy remarried, too.Yikes. It probably doesn't help that the Wilson County courthouse burned down 1881.Any help out there in Allen land?
