I am the 4th great grandson of Zachariah Allen ca. 1730 of Orange County, North Carolina. Zachariah left a Will in Orange County, North Carolina in 1789. I believe his wife was Mary Woody. I obtained the YDNA of Zachariah through his son Robert and his descendents.
With help, I located the descendent of Zachariah Allen ca. 1750-59 of Virginia or North Carolina.This Zachariah Allen was first married to Sarah, last name possibly Bryan. Zachariah's second wife was Elizabeth Law. Zachariah died in 1838 in Illinois. Zachariah's descendent provided his DNA for analysis. The 37 DYS markers for both men are an exact match.
This connection is interesting, to say the least. If anyone wishes further information, you may contact me at email@example.com.
