----------child: Joseph, Kindle (1878 - 1952)
Marriage NoteMarriage date of 6 September 1873 given in "Magoffin Co., KY Marriages 1st 50 years 1860-1910" Because of the discrepency of dates of marriage - perhaps Joseph had a wife prior to marrying Delila Allen.

spouse: Hurt, Martha Rebecca (1869 - 1954)

Marriage NoteThomas D. Allen has a picture of Eli and his 2nd wife with Mack, Stella, Jewel Deene, Dan, Floyd Mae Ludwig, Fred and Eugene. The picture was taken in 1942. The 1900 U.S. Census lists his birthday as May, 1867 (Vol. 52, Sheet 8, E.D. 55, Line 55 Soundex A-422, Roll #4). The census also lists his wife as Rebecca (6/ / 1869), age 32, born in Kentucky.
Marriage NoteIt is logical that Richard and Elijah were brothers; also worth noting is that they both married Williams girls. Most likely Edy and Catherine were cousins. (See Floyd Co. Marriage Records.) Note that Richard names his second son Elijah, possibly after his brother (or father?). See note for Daniel Allen who died in Morgan County, KY, April 1826.

Marriage NoteThe marriage date from the original database was reported as 12 Apr 1820. However, there is the belief that Elizabeth ALLEN m 19 June 1810 Samuel PATTON in Floyd Co., KY. Samuel ALLEN was a bondsman for the marriage license of Elizabeth ALLEN and Samuel PATTON, dated 6 April 1810. When the marriage took place on 12 Apr 1810 Sarah ALLEN was given as the mother.

Edward and Patty Lydick, Sr., 9537 Eden Dr., King George, VA 22435 were visiting this Sunday morning. She is researching the lineage of William Shepherd b. 1840 who married 1st to Mary "Polly" Hale b. 1842. Polly married 2nd to Hezekiah Allen and William m. 2nd to Elizabeth Prater. The 1850 Floyd Co. KY census lists Brice Hale, age 53, b. VA, wife Mary (Vance) age 60, b. VA with Jacob Shepherd, age 25, and William Shepherd, age 10. By 1860 the above William at age 20 was married to Polly who was age 18. The mother of William and Jacob Shepherd is thought to have been Elizabeth Shepherd, dau of David Shepherd b. 1791 and Lucretia Hale b. 1793. Patty had been told by a very good researcher that William and perhaps Jacob Shepherd were in fact Barnetts...and that is where she is stalled.spouse: Hale, Mary (1842 - )
