England Obadiah + Elizabeth Sanford, Mary Savage (#2) b. 1646 - died 7 Apr 1712 Obadiah, Jr. + Dorcas Wright Ebenezer + Elizabeth Powstel Jonathan + Abigail Birdseye Martin Walter Jonathan + Lydia Bernard Dennis Collins + Orpha Eldora Heath Lula Genevieve Allen + James Buren Baker
she was my grandmother and last of Allens in our family
Ethel Genevieve Baker + Kinsey McColl,S.B. Bright, Jr Jean Kathleen McColl + James Olin Coleman
we have three children and six grandchildren two sons carry on the name Coleman David Allen Coleman has the middle name Allen to keep family names going.
I have printed out your answer - how exciting!If you know anything about this line of Obadiah'sI would love to have it. I have only six children listed of our Samuel of Braintree,England
I have a good bit of info on some of the family - they moved to CT, then VT, then WI, then Iowa and DC Allen managed to move to GA and then FL!My grandmother was born, as were two others, in GA in East Point (part of Atlanta).
Glad to know another Allen!
Thank you again for writing! We live in Lenoir, NC - foothills of the mountains - where do you live?
