Help!My great-great-great grandfather was Wesley ALLEN who lived in Union Township, Madison Co., Ohio, at the time of the 1850 Federal Census.His children at the time were John, Nancy, Amanda/America (?), Elijah, Lucinda, and Elizabeth R.(Note:I have not personally seen this census; someone on the internet provided me with this; IGI also has it on version 3.05 on CD).
Another researcher on the web said that this Wesley ALLEN's father was Elijah ALLEN, born in Shenandoah Co., Virginia.Elijah is supposedly the youngest of eleven children (ten of whom were boys).Elijah emigrated to Ohio in 1818.
Here's where I may connect with your request:
Tonight at www.familysearch.org I found an Elijah ALLEN born 1780/1790; married 8 Jun 1807 to a Nancy YOUNG (both events in Shenandoah Co., VA).Elijah's parents are listed as John C. ALLEN and Lucy ALLEN!Since my Wesley ALLEN has children named John, Nancy, Elijah, and Lucinda, could my Wesley ALLEN's father be the Elijah ALLEN whose father and mother were John and Lucy (shortened form for Lucinda)???
I'd appreciate any information/insight you would be willing to share with me.Thanks!
