I am not sure if Churchill Allen fits into my Allen line or not. My earliest Allen was James C. Allen who married Elizabeth Chastain. James Allen's cousin was also James Allen son of William Allen. At first I thought the C stood for Churchill but am not at all sure about that now. I believe my James Allen's father may have been Reuben Allen. Son of Samuel Allen who immigrated to the U.S. from Ireland around 1746. This Churchill Allen was appointed guardian of Sarah Frances and Jane-- children of William F.Allen. I would like to know if this William F. Allen was married to Mary Barnes or have I got the wrong William? BTW -William (married to Mary Barnes) and Reuben Allen were brothers. Both are in my line. My ancestor is Reuben. Known Children of William and Mary were: James Allen (married Martha Chastain), Hugh Allen, John Allen, Millie Allen, Nancy Allen, Elizabeth Allen, Tempie Temperance Allen (married John Abner Chastain), Sallie Allen, Lucinda Allen. If you aren't confused (LOL) and this sounds familiar to you, I would love to hear from you! Thanks.
