You have given me some excellent ideas and I shall explore them! Thank you so much!
Susan Allen Cussons married (1st) Benjamin Banbury (or Bunbary) Allen. He was quite wealthy and the area of Glen Allen was named for his family.
A friend of mine (in England) has been researching Benjamin and his family and I have included him in my searches. There are a number of Allens buried in Shockoe Cemetery in Richmond- are any of them your family?
Thank you again for the great ideas for where to take the search and if you have any info on the Allens of Glen Allen that would be terrific!
All the best,
