I descend from Solomon Allen and Mariah Price of Jackson Co., TN.I have 25 years worth of research on this family unit that I would be willing to share with anyone who is interested.
I am not subscribed to the Allen mailing list, so I don't think that I can post there. I did scan the archives of the mailing list at Rootsweb, but could not determine who it was that needed help on this family.
I would be happy to share whatever anyone needs on Sol and Mariah.I also have details on Sol's siblings Zera T Allen who married Nancy Price, and Susan Allen who married Wade Price.
I have transcribed the court case concerning Elijah Price's land in Jackson Co.It is posted on the Jackson Co. genweb site. From depositions given in this case in 1879 - 1881, by Mariah as well as other family members and neighbors, I can tell you that Solomon and Mariah raised only 10 children.
Sol's tombstone is no longer standing in Allentown Cemetery.The only thing left is a footstone next to Mariah's grave that reads S.E.A.He was last known to be alive 22 May 1886 when he and Mariah deeded the land on which they lived to their son John Wesley.
Mariah's tombstone reads Mariah Allen, wife of Solomon Allen, born 1809 died 1894,the rest (if there was any) has sunk into the ground. The last time I saw it was in 1996, so it may have sunk even lower by now.
If you wish to post my email address on the Allen list for others to contact me, please do so.
