Hi, guys. I am descended from Isaac C. Allen as follows:
Isaac C. Allen/Frances Pettit Thomas Allen/Elizabeth Summers Martha Allen/Samuel Wilshire Gass, Sr. Samuel Wilshire Gass, Jr./Elizabeth J. Nolen William J. Gass/Lucinda A. Worthey Nellie E. Gass/William Ray Wheeler William Rodger Wheeler/Mary E. Kenning William Roger Wheeler/Sandra J. Dehner Kimberly A. Wheeler
I took a particular interest in this posting, as it really is the first reference I've seen to a candidate for the father of Isaac C. Allen.There seem to be many of us looking for him with negative returns.Have accumulated masses of information regarding Isaac Allen and his descendants, but the closest I've heard to a reference of a potential father for him is a vague rumor that he was related to Ethan Allen.This reference to Ethan Allen in the same sentence as Isaac's possible father (John) got my attention, particularly since I had just started working on the idea of addressing some North Carolina records from the 1600's forward (any port in a storm).I wanted to ask whether you had had any success in investigating this lead?I've long since resigned myself to the unlikelihood of the existence of true proof of Isaac Allen's parentage, but I certainly would be willing to change my attitude in a hurry over family documents. I'd appreciate corresponding with you.Maybe we should start a genealogical website devoted to the descendants of Isaac C. Allen, since there are so many of us looking.
