I have Hannah Mary Magdalene Allen b. abt 1806, who maried John Parks b. 1805.John was also married to Elizabeth Allen alleged sister of Hannah.I have their parents as David Hiram Allen b. ca. 1775 and Nancy ?
I know nothing more on this branch of Allens, but John's parents were Jonathan Parks b. ca. 1778 and Elizabeth Cannady. Jonathan and Elizabeth were married in Wilkes Co., NC on 27 Jan 1800.
I have David Hiram Allen having a son Hiram Allen b. abt. 1812 died in 1875 Upson Co., GA married Martha D. Stewart.
At one time I was very interested in this Allen line, as my 2nd gr grandfather was Hiram Allen b. bwt 1788-1795 SC. and who also named a son David Allen.
But so far have not been able to make a connection between these two Allen families.
The Parks are my direct line, although this John Parks was a very distant cousin.The Parks originally came from Ireland, into VA, with my line coming through Rappahannock Co. VA, to Essex Co., VA to Albemarle Co., NC, then Wilkes Co., NC. where my Charity Parks was born and married Richard Chandler then moved to Buncombe Co., NC to Franklin Co., GA.
Other Parks stayed in VA some moved to TN,KY some to SC some to MO. GA and AL.
