My great x3 grandfather was a Sylvester Joseph Allen, born 05 Oct 1854 in Roper, North Carolina, in Washington County. He first married Martha Thomas Clayton, on 14 Jun 1877 in Roxboro, North Carolina, in Person County. The family moved around quite a bit and ended up in old Norfolk County, Virginia. They had a girl, Georgie Powers, and 3 boys, Ruffus, Jesse and Fred (also known as Clarence). Joseph & Martha divorced around 1900 and he remarried to Fannie Blow on 19 Aug 1903 and they moved north to Nansemond County. She died a few years later. I don't know much about him after this, other than that he died 26 Jun 1929 at Portsmouth, Virginia. He could be the one that was married to Nora Gardner at some point. Do you have a marriage date?

Joseph had a problem with drinking and would be categorized as a "rover".

Please contact me back. I'm so interested in knowing if I had another branch of Allen family members I didn't know about. My email address is celticchristian@live.com
