Drug out all of my paperwork and talked to my uncle,so here is what else I found out.The Allen's in Arkansas were in Hempsted County, Bois d'Arc township, House #22 in the 1850 census. Mr. Allen may have come from North Carolina by way of Maryland and he married Sarah Bond(?)born 1797 from Kentucky in Tennessee.The 3 children we know about are William M. (1831), Susanna (abt 1834), and Alfred T.(1838)- there may be older children. Mr. Allen was probably dead in 1850 since he isn't on the census. It all hinges on finding out what "Mr. Allen"'s name really is?Does anything look familiar? I am relatively new to the ancestory game and the earlier Allen's covered their tracks well.Any suggestion's would be helpful.
