A Nancy Allen is listed in Benton County 1840 census. She is listed between Robert S. Wardand William Pearce. My ancestor Thomas J. Ward Sr. born around 1770 is said to have married an Allen. This marriage would have taken place either in Anson County, NC. Or maybe S.C. Robert S Ward is a brother to my gr gr grandfather Thomas J. Ward Jr. I am wondering if this Nancy Allen born 1770-1780 might be his aunt. If I could find who her husband was I might have a lead on the wife of Thomas Ward Sr. who just might be a sister to Nancy's husband.Any info appreciated.
