Hi Steve, Although I don't have information on your Erasmus Allen, I found your post very interesting.It is interesting to me because my ancestor Thomas Allen was living near Erasmus Withers Allen in the mid to late 1700's in Rowan County, North Carolina.It is thought that two of Erasmus Withers Allen's sons went to Kentucky.They are Thomas b. 1756 and Stretchly Allen.The Bible of Erasmus Withers Allen can be found online.
In the 1850 U.S.Census your Erasmus is living with his parents James F. Allen, age 43, born Kentucky and Elizabeth A., age 33, born Kentucky.Erasmus was born in Missouri.He was listed as age 17.
Erasmus Withers Allen is well researched.If your Allen line would connect to him, you would have alot of information.
Do you have any family history regarding what part of Kentucky James F. Allen was from?
