Maybe I put it down incorrectly. Francis Allen was married to Benjamin Self abt/1870 AL, moved to AR, m. u/k/ Rodgers ,before1878, A.M. Deaver 1881. Francis Rodgers is found on 1880 Conway, AR census with her children Amanda age 6, James age 2. They are in father Asa Allen's household. Can't find the right James Rodgers in AR. There are several.
Our story is that Asa Allen's 1st wife, Diana was the one killed by a falling tree abt/1872, and my gf-Isaac Bailey was their last child b/1870. He indicated that he was raised by an older brother, but was back with father Asa by 1880.
The facts do get tangled, don't they. And who knows for sure?
Good chating with you.
