Philil Allen Rev. Pen. S31514 VA>HANDCOCK & CLARKE CO GEORGIA
This is an update with my current contact information to my previous postings to this site in 2002 & 2010 before it goes to read only in September 2014.
I am seeking the parentage of Sarah Robinson who married Philip Allen in Clarke County, Georgia, in 1819.I am also interested in the origins of the name of Robinson Creek that was in Clarke County, Georgia, but fell into Oconee County when it was formed c. 1875.
Sarah Robinson b.c. 1790 Georgia d. after 1870 probable in Clarke County, Georgia. In later census she is found living with some of her other adult Allen children.My line comes from Frances Mary Ann Allen m. James Crow in Clarke County, Georgia, in 1846.They are living next door to Sarah Allen in the 1850 census of Clarke County, Georgia.
Searching for parents of Phil(l)ip Allin (Allen) Revolutionary Soldier who drew a pension under the pension act of 1832.(S31514) He applied as a resident of Clarke County, Georgia. He claimed to be about 73 years old and that he first enlisted in 1776 in Mechlenburg County, Virginia. Later re-enlisted and fought with Gen. Greene in South Carolina. He would have been about 16 years old at his first enlistment and born in King and Queen County, Virginia. Died before 1840 probably Clarke County, Georgia. His character witness was Parmenus (sp?) Haynes who was the post master at Watkinsville, the county seat at that time.
I have since found that Philip Allen previously lived in Hancock County, Georgia, with another wife named Sara(h) before 1800. She was a widow with children married to a much younger man. No children identified.Philip Allen was old enough to have had a previous wife and/or children.There are numerous early marriages for Allens in Hancock who could have been his children.No proof one way or the other.
According to the dar.org web site no one has ever joined NSDAR on my Philip Allen.
Any suggestions for further research appreciated.
