Re: Allen descendant,;from William, James, Hugh, Joseph,Lydia , Geuliaelma, Nora May
Hugh (1784- ca. 1861) had another son, Nathan (b. 23 Dec 1832 in Wayne, Indiana, d. Aug 1905) - my great-great grandfather. Nathan married Jemima Elin Thompson (1837-1903) on 7 Nov. 1857, in Laporte County, IN.
I had a difficult time sorting out this Nathan with William's son, Nathan W Allen b. 14 Aug 1834, d.21 Mar 1920. Both Nathans were born in Wayne County, both lived in Laporte County for much of their lives, both were Quakers (for at least part of their lives) & both served in the Civil War.
Nathan W. Allen married Sarah Rebekah McCord (1845-1901) on 10 Dec. 1861, in Porter County, IN.
Also, I think there is some confusion about James' (b. 2 Jan 1742 in St George's Parish, Harford County, MD, d. 10 Dec 1815 in Blount County, TN) parents. They were definitely named William & Mary, but this William is from Maryland (Harford County) & his wife's surname is unknown (as far as I've been able to research.) There is another William Allen, from Pennsylvania, who married Mary Welsh (Walsh), but I've seen a transcript of his Bible family listing (see here: http://genforum.genealogy.com/allen/messages/14882.html)http://genforum.genealogy.com/allen/messages/14882.html), and there isn't a James listed & all of his children who are listed were born in Pennsylvania.
