I have just transcribed the family register pages of the John C. Allen Family Bible. John was first married to Mary Drinkwater, and then to Mary L. Devine. John and Mary (Devine) Allen lived for some time in Benton, Ringgold, Iowa. The Bible was passed later to grandson Thomas Evans Belding who moved to various locations, ending up in Oregon, where the Bible came from to me. You can view the transcription at www.chaseyourtale.com and click on the Family Bible link, then the Allen/Belding link.
