Trying a different approach on my ancestors! Finally found names and dates of my great grandfather and his wife. William (?) Allen born June 22,1835 in Sterling (?), Ky. (can't find a Sterling,Ky.)- married Susan Q. (Quick) Nelson in Indiana in 1857. They had either nine or ten children together (one of which was supposed to have been my grandfather). William died in Wa. state in 1923, where he and some, or all, of his family went. Buried in Montesano,Wa. along with my granddad and his wife Susan. They were supposed to have had half of their children born in Indiana and half in Missouri (?). They are listed in the 1880 Kansas census, yet none of their children were born there, and they have no traceable roots there. Does anyone know of any ties or previous family in Ky.-IND.-KS.-MO. or WA.? Thanks, Dave Allen.
