Martha Allen Hardee of Bayboro

Classification: Query
I am looking for who the parents of Martha Allen who married William Henry Hardee may have been. Many people on Ancestry.com have her listed as the daughter of Rebecca Alford and Isaac Allen but the censuses just do not match up to her.
I believe instead that she maybe the granddaughter of Robert Allen and Dotty Alford of Bayboro, possibly from their daughter Dorcas Allen.

While the 1930 census has her being born in the 1880's she would have been 13 years old if her first son was born in 1899. While I know that is probable, all of the other census consistantly have her at being born at around 1873.


This is comparing her to the Martha O Allen that was the daughter of Isaac Allen and Rebecca Alford.

I am pretty sure this proves these two are not the same Martha Allen. So far I have not been able to find any death record for Martha Allen Hardee. I assume she is buried in Bayboro Baptist Church Cemetery with her family. Does anyone have any more information that can help me with finding her parents?
