I DONT THINK SHE WAS INDIAN: FATHER:JOHN ALLEN B. @ 1797 VIRGINIA - died 1844 Ray, MO Mother: Elizabeth Harrison (1801-1834) b. SC d.Fredrickstown, MO
in the 1870 US Census: Musadae Allen(could be Musadare, but haven't seen original) Location: Twelvemile, Madison, MO P. O. Frederickstown
I believe from some records that her father was born in Rockingham, VA - I think these were Irish or Scotch-Irish family- all of their children had strange or unusual names: Napoleon Bonaparte Allen for example!
The westward movement of peoples from VA to TN and then on to MO is fascinating -
