Sheila - I have found another Allen from the line of Isaac to test!His sister has volunteered him, and she is giving me good reason to believe that Isaac may be related to William Allen who is in Grayson VA.
Another thing that is interesting is that we have just found out this week that we have another DNA match and it comes from Emanuel Allen who is in Spartanburg SC 1840 on.
I had looked at the Scritchfield relations with William Allen in Surry NC and in Henry VA (or was it Patrick?) on The Goodspur, but I did not know that the Scritchfields were in Spartanburg as well.This is very interesting indeed.
If you know anything that can help with these Spartanburg Allens I'd be much obliged, as I know absolutely nothing!Do you know if the ones in the 1840 census are all related or of different families? c
