Re: Elizabeth Jane MANGRUM, 1826 -?
Elizabeth J. Mangrum, born ca 1822, Maury Co, TN married Minor C. Pilkinton on 9-11-1844, Maury Co, TN (her 2nd husband was William J. Reeves).
Elizabeth was the daughter of Jane P. Allen, b. ca 1792, VA and her 2nd husband, Edwin Mangrum, b. ca 1781, VA, d. ca Dec 1827, Maury Co, TN.They also had one other known child, a son, Isom Mangrum.
Jane Allen's first husband was John Whitfield who died sometime in 18teens, Maury Co, TN.Jane married Whitfield on Aug 30,1808 in Greensville Co, TN.I assume there were children but I've not found a record of any child.
Jane Allen was the daughter of William Allen and his wife, Mary (Allen) Allen...yep, maiden name same as married name...they were probably cousins.After Wm. Allen died ca 1816 in VA, his widow, Mary Allen, married Henry Mangrum Jr. in Maury Co, TN on Aug 18, 1819.Don't know when she died other than after 1827.
Edwin Mangrum was the son of Henry Mangrum Jr...the same Henry Mangrum Jr. above...The old families liked to keep everyone close...
I lost Jane Mangrum and her son, Isom Mangrum, after 1860-1870.If you have information to share on this family, I would appreciate it.The Mangrums/Allens go back to 1620s Jamestown, VA.Would love to exchange information with others who are researching these families.
