Very interesting line from Pietro Alberti which I just learned about.Does anyone have any positive proof of the first Ananias Allen being the son of John and Francyn Albertis Allen?I haven't been able to find much on the connection but from Dutch Reformed records, it looks promising.I descend from Gislem Gershom Allen through his son Squire Allen as such:
Squire Allen = Matilda Snow b. 1763 NC d. after 1840 Saline Co., Ark.
Mary Ann "Polly" Allen = Richard Brazil (Braswell), county judge and Arkansas State Senator b. 1792 SC, married Johnson or Randolph Co., Illinois 1810 d. ? Perry Co., Ark.
Obedience Brazil = Huram Dow Bland b. 1813 Johnson Co., IL d. 1877 Ivy, Dallas Co., Ark. Buried Hopewell Cemetery.
Mary E. "Polly" Bland = Thomas Hawkins Riggan b. 1839 Saline Co., Ark. d. 1925 Ivy, Dallas Co., Ark. Buried Hopewell Cemetery.
Edward Durham Riggan = Mary Evelyn Fite b. 1881 Ivy, Dallas Co., Ark. d. 1964 Brewster, Okanogan Co.,WA
Roy Riggan = Laura Mae Smith b. 1912 Ivy, Ark. d. 1970 Brewster, WA
