Wondering if anyone has more information about Allen Latham Anderson... Here is what I have found.
According to "Kentucky: A History of the State, by Battle, Perrin & Kniffin, 1886, Lyon Co." Allen was born to Charles Anderson and Leiza J. Brown.He attended West Point, was captain of the Fifth Artillery, US Army (Civil War), and fought at Valverde N. M.
He was born in 1837 and died 1910 (place unknown)
He married Sarah Douglas Rencher (b. 1844 in Portugal d. 1934,) marriage date unknown. Sarah is buried in Pittsboro, N. C. with her brothers, father, and mother.
They had at least one child, Mary Louisa Anderson born in Eddyville, Ky. May 22, 1870 (from the Abraham Rencher family bible)
Note: The father of Sarah Douglas Rencher was Abraham Rencher, he was Gov. of the territory of New Mexico 1857-1861, but "home" was Pittsboro, N. C.Interestingly enough, the marriage was not recorded in the bible, but is reported in numerous accounts of the life of Gov. Abraham Rencher. Both of Sarah's brothers were officers in the Confederacy.
I have not been able to find out what happened to Allen, nor their child, Mary Louisa.There is some indication that they lived in Ohio for a while, but I have not been able to verify it.
