I also have an uncle named William,but I have never met him. My grandfather was Joseph Allen born 1839,but birthplace unknown. He married Annie Barbee Nov.10,1887 in Alamance Co.N.C. My daddy Elisha was born 1889 in Rockingham Co. N.C. According to data given to my late brother the other children born to Joseph and Annie were--Sallie Ann,born 1892-William,born 1893-Robert born 1895-Henry born 1898-Joseph born 1901-Frank born 1905andJessie born 1912.I do not know if all this data is correct. I do know about Aunt Sallie and Uncle Robert,but never met or heard of others except when daddy died 1946,Aunt Sallie said she didn't know where William was,but Frank was in Prison in Tennessee.So maybe and maybe not we are related.
