Isaac Allen in NC?
Posted By: egt on Saturday, 25 February 2006, at 2:53 p.m.
Last night I decided to look for Isaac Allen again. I think that I have found him. There is an Isaac Allen who is 15 years old living in Leaksville, Rockingham NC in 1870. Liddie Allen, 50 is HOH. Living in the household is George 19, Isaac 15, Jim 14, and Silvie 10. Living next door is a brother Peter Allen. Liddie can not be found after 1870.
This is my reasoning. The Colored Mmarriage index of Pitt county list a witness to Isaac's 1st marriage in 1875 as James Allen. ( I think this is Jim Allen) His mother is listed as Lucy Allen. (I think this is Liddie). He named one of his sons George ( after his brother) He named one of his daughters Silvia (after his sister)
In 1910 when he married Clara Mewborne in Pitt county , he says he is from Va. I looked at a map
of Rockingham County NC and found that it is bordered on two sides by Va.
He knew something about Va, since it was right in his yard. Please give me input. Am I graping at straws? I have been looking for over a year.
