I am trying to find the right Drury Allen for my family line. Some say Drury was a Am. Rev. War Hero and others don't mention it at all. Both of these Drurys have the same parents, grand parents and great grandparents. This has really confused alot of people in the Allen line including me!
Here is the breakdown:
Drury 1: http://files.usgwarchives.org/ga/greene/bios/allen.txt
Drury Allen b. 1 Dec 1749 Lunenberg, Va. d. Pike Co. Ga 1826
The son of Young Allen & Martha Coleman, the Grandson of Robert Allen Jr & Elizabeth Stokes; the Great-grandson of Robert Sr. & Elizabeth Walker; He married Elizabeth Yarborough b 9 May 1752 d 1828
Drury Allen 2: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/214432/person/-1799725616
b. 1 Dec 1752 Lunenburg, Virginia,
d. 1814 Rutherford, NC m. Lourany Hargrave in 1770 << do I have the correct wife?
Drury's parents were Young Allen and Martha Nancy Coleman;
Grandparents were Rbt Allen Jr and Elizabeth Stokes Young;
Greatgrandparents were Rbt Allen Sr and Elizabeth Walker.
What am I doing wrong??? I must solve this mystery! How can two clearly different Drurys have the same parents and grandparents and die in two different places??
In both cases there is a gap in having children during some part of the Am. Rev. war. period. Perhaps they both served?
IN Drury 2 he fathered my ancestor James Allen. In Drury 1 there is no James Allen. One would think that would solve the mystery, but again, both Drurys have the same parents, grandparents, etc.! How can that be possible??
Now that you can see why I am confused I would appreciate any help! Thank you in advance for any help that anyone can supply me.
