The John George Wallen,14Dec1840-07Feb1928, you have is my gg grandfather, I have been desperately trying to confirm the identity of his father. We have very little information about him, the family story that has been passed down is that he left his wife and younger children (one of which was my ggrandfather Thomas/Trigg) with "with nothing but a tick of straw on the floor" and completely disappeared. I would love to have any information on him and/or the Virginia Mahan Wallen you mention. Or if you have any ideas of sources for me to check out. Thanks!
