My husband's ALLENs were in Horsehead, Johnson Co., AR from 1850 onward. They could have been there as early as the 1820s or 1830s. William ALLEN was born in 1811 Madison Co., AL. He died in Johnson Co., AR in 1891. He is buried in Hogan Cemetery. I have not been able to figure out his parents. I also have not been able to figure the parents of his wife Elizabeth Frances SCOTT. She was born 24 Oct 1832 KY; she died 2 Mar 1919 AR? They had children ranging from 1849 to 1878. My husband's line comes through their son Thomas Franklin ALLEN b: 1867 IL; d: 1933 Horsehead, Johnson Co., AR; buried Hogan Cemetery; m: 1890 Johnson Co., AR to Sophia Ann MIRACLE. Thomas was the only child not born in Johnson Co., AR. As the story goes, William sent his wife, Elizabeth, & the children to IL by train for awhile when there was a lot of problems with bushwrackers. She was pregnant with Thomas when they went to IL. Do you have any other info on the ALLEN line? Do you know anything about the SCOTTs? The children of William ALLEN & Elizabeth SCOTT were: Mary ALLEN; John ALLEN; Thomas Franklin ALLEN; Richard ALLEN; Charlie H. ALLEN; Elizabeth ALLEN; Bill ALLEN; Alley ALLEN; Susannah ALLEN; J. Daniel ALLEN.
