Tanya? Bill? Are either of you still around? Your email addresses appear to be out of date - not that I'm surprised. I'm eight or nine years late finding your messages. I am hoping this public posting reaches you. Please contact me if you are interested in sharing info about this family.
James ALLEN (1798-1885) was my 3rd great grandfather. I, too, have information to share. I hope to learn more about his parents and siblings.
James married Nancy MAUZY (1796-1873) abt 1820 in Hampshire, VA (now WV). Four ALLEN children are identified in the 1850 US census. I believe there may have been other children.
I have quite a bit of information about the families of John, James, Emily, and Joseph (my ancestor). Would you like to exchange info?
