Thanks for the reply. Yes, I was lucky enough to make contact with a lady who lives in the area and she was gracious enough to copy the will and send it to me. Thanks for the offer, anyway. Very kind of you.
I'm sorry I can't help with the Allens. I have no info on Anne Allen McDavid's family but it does seem likely her family may have come to America during the same time frame. What I have learned is the McDavids first settled elsewhere and migrated with other Irish families into the Lunenberg county area. I haven't worked on this line in a while and am a little rusty on details.
Have you checked Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch Irish in Virgina, 1745-1800? Interesting reading.
Thanks again for the reply and the offer to help.
