Rex, I have researched Allen Phillips and determined (through CSA Pension Records of John P Smith) he is a half brother to my g grandfather John P Smith. John and Allen's Mother was Penelope or Nellie (per Allen's death certificate which listed his Mother as Nellie.) I researched Burrell Wright and feel Burrell, his wife Nancy (supposedly Smith) or someone in Burrell Wright's family is related to Penelope or John P's father who is still unidentified.I got an 1860La. census index but have been unable to find or to verify locations of Allen's siblings. Seems they all just fell off the face of the earth including Nellie and Robert. I also feel Thomas Bass is tied to Allen's family someway. So goes genealogy.Thanks for the research you sent. If I can find maiden name for Nellie maybe I can find name of John P's Father.
