I'm looking for information about my 2nd great grandfather, Nathan Allen (b. 23 Dec 1832 in Wayne, IN, d. abt 1905 in Marion, IN.) He was the youngest child of Hugh Allen (b. 3 Oct 1784 in Orange, NC, d. aft 1860 in Grant Co. IN) & Frances Morton (1792-1849.)
Nathan married Jemima Ellen Thompson (b. 9 Dec 1837 in Toms Brook, Shenandoah, VA, d. 24 May 1903 in Marion Grant, IN.) They had eight children: Willard Dewitt Allen (1862-1950) John J Allen (1863-1863) Virginia Lorena Allen (1864-1954) Adelbert "Dell" Allen (1867-1930) Eva Gertrude Allen (1869-1949) Claude Harris Allen (1874-1961) Murty M Allen (1877-1892) Alesta Ernestine Allen (1880-?)
Nathan was a carpenter & for at least part of his life, lived in LaPorte County, IN, near his nephew, Nathan W. Allen (1834-1920), who was also a carpenter. This leads to some degree of confusion, since their information is quite similar.
