Re: Isaac Allen in NC?
In Response To: Re: Isaac Allen in NC? ()
I've found it's important to look at maps. Lots of times our ancestors did things across county lines, and sometimes across state lines - and counties have often changed or been absorbed by others, or changed states.
I have plenty of folks from Loudoun VA, who are in records from Fauquier or Fairfax. Others from Mecklenburg VA associated with Mecklenburg NC.
Always check neighboring counties for records!
