Benjamin Allen b. 1779, NC died in 1853, Spring River, Lawrence Co., Missouri.He married Sarah Voorhie on 10 August 1811 in Maury Co. Tennessee.His children listed in his will are George W., Aaron V., John W., Albert G., Samuel M.C., Parilee, Sarah, Benjamin B., and Emaline Jane.
Listed next to Benjamin Allen in the 1850 census of Lawrence Co., Missouri, is Matthew Lowder (Matthew's wife was Althea Davidson, granddaughter of Daniel Allen b.1759, NC d. 1834 Giles Co., Tennessee.)
Benjamin's children George W. and Samuel would move to Eastland, Co. Texas by 1880.
I am searching for information on Benjamin Allen because he seems closely allied with the three sons of Thomas Allen b. 1766, Rowan Co. NC, and Margery (Bryan) Allen. Three of their sons moved from Greene Co. IL, about 1850, to Spring River, Lawrence Co., Missouri.They are Samuel(unmarried), Thomas(unmarried), and Josiah.Two of Josiah's daughters would marry Lowders living next to Benjamin Allen.Seven of Josiah's children would be living in Eastland Co., Texas, or very near in Erath Co. by 1870, living near Benjamin's children and grandchildren by the 1880 census.
Any information on Benjamin Allen would be appreciated.
