Another bit of info on Duke and Francis Allen.She indicates on 2 different census' that she was b/NC.If Duke was from NC also, maybe this is another clue to his beginnings. Nancy Dill, mentioned in George Allen's will, m/Wm. Arlin Allen -1815 TN, d/Walker Co. AL 1854. Our Francis is found on 1840 Walker Co. AL census living next door to Wm. Dill, daughter-Elizabeth Bayless, and son James Allen. What puzzles me here is that a male age 60-70 is listed in her household.I believe Duke died late 1830s--so who is he? More question!!! I keep looking back-- Duke and Francis' oldest daughters--b/1812,1815 both indicate they were n/TN,which goes along with prior info from Robert Earl Allen-1989. Just don't get the "David" reference as her husband. David and Duke were brothers--right?
