Hi Steve, Was the mother of your Erasmus Allen WINNIE RILEY TERRILL?
It connects to the information on Terrill's on the Marion Co., Missouri genweb.According to Terrill information, Winnie Riley Terrill b. 20 Feb 1810 in Ky married James Allen on 10 May 1830 and died on 23 Sept 1839.They had children Lisa Ann, Eramus (the author said this is a typo and should be Erasmus,) William b.1835 and James Marion b.1838.
The site gives information back to Robert Terrill b. 19Sept1697 in New Kent Co., Virginia.Christened 25 Dec1697 in St. Peter's Church, New Kent Co.,Va. died 13Feb1786 in Orange Co.,Va.
Probably of no consequence, but Erasmus Withers Allen had a daughter Sarah who married William Terrill, Jr.
I would love to see you make a connection to Erasmus Withers Allen for a personal reason.I don't believe anyone from the Erasmus Withers Allen line has taken a YDNA test. There has recently been someone from my Allen line take a YDNA test.I would like to see the comparison.
