This Wm Allen is usually connected with Mecklenburg Co., VA dying in 1789.This last wife was Sarah Ann Smith, the dau of Henry [Harry] Smith and Tabitha Churchill.Six children were born to them. Their 2nd son the Rev. Joseph Smith Allen was married 1st to Sarah Wade, the dau. of Jonadab Wade and his wife Mary Ann Hunt Dillard.Jonadab deeded land naming Joseph Smith Allen and Sarah.As far as any records I have found, Joseph Smith and Sarah Allen had one son, Smith Wade Allen. [not William] Court records in Missouri support this.
Smith Wade Allen married Adeline Belana May, the dau. of Charles P. May and Ursula A. Johns[t]on.Three daus. are listed in court actions.However, only one appears as an adult.Charles P. and Ursula A. May are her guardians.Her name was Martha Johnson deGraffenried Allen.She married Green Fulton Thompson.
Both the Missouri historys and a book by Judith Parks America Hill about Henry Co., Va contain errors in this Allen family line.
Rev. Joseph Smith Allen married 2ndly to a sister of Charles P. May,Rachel McFarland May.Seven children, three dying young.
After Wm Allen's death, his last wife, Sarah Ann Allen married John Bailey.They had one child, Tabitha who married Rev. J. C. Traylor. In Sarah Ann Bailey's will, she lists her Allen children and Tabitha.
I hope if anyone is using some of the information from these books that they will check the records.
