I no longer believe what I did back in 2003/2004. I believe now that John and Mary "Polly" Allen were the parents of (at least):
Carr Allen Bailey Allen Frances Allen Wright Sally Allen Wright (this one is a bit sketchy)
I further believe Carr and an unknown wife were the parents of:
James Allen (I have very little on him) Rebecca Allen Oller Mary "Polly" Allen Oller Hannah Allen Oller Beverly A. Allen
I believe Bailey married Jemima and they were the parents of, although I'm not positive (still looking for info): Robert Allen John Allen Joseph Allen Samuel Allen Anna Allen Bailey Allen Carr Allen Daniel Allen George Washington Allen
I know for certain that Nancy Allen Wright was John & Polly's daughter because I've read John Allen's pension and she's included in the pension document.
I have some letters sent to me by other researchers written by my grandmother's aunt Vida Jones Woodruff. She makes these intriguing statements:
Page 10 "Aunt Millie, my grandma, used to talk all the time about the old Rev War so I know some of her folks was in it. An Oller and Allen had to marry brothers and sisters for Aunt Milie and Car Allen was double cousins.Look at his grave stone at Parks. Belve Allen, Aunt Millie Uncle, was killed by Bush Whackers. My mother was 6 years old and seen it – it was in Civil War. Irene I can’t read my own writing and I think of something new every day. Vida"
Page 11 "Ell Baggs was a cousin to Ollers some way or Jones. Aunt Mary Curl was kin to the Ollers. Judge Curl was a judge at Hot Springs for years. Car Allen was a double cousin to Millie and Ollers. Two Allens and Ollers must married brother and sisters. Old Uncle Belve Allen, Car Allens daddy, lived with Aunt Millie at Civil War. He was Crippled and helped with the children and he was killed by Bush Whackers. Millie Oller Griffith and Benton Jones children was Bill Jones, Matilda Jones Harris."
Interesting for me are these facts: 1) Millie Ann Oller was my 3rd great grandmother. 2) Millie married Christopher Columbus Griffith who died in the Civil War. 3) Millie married second Thomas Benton Jones. 4) Millie and Christopher had two children, one of whom was Mary Elizabeth Griffith. 5) Mary married her step father's nephew, Levi Benton Jones. 6)Levi and Mary were my grandmother's grandparents.
