Hello, Good to hear from more cousins! I am a ggdaughter of Asa and Diana Allen. My gf-Isaac Bailey was there youngest son, b/1870. After Diana's death abt/1872 Asa married Betta Sledge Rodgers and had sons-Henry and Calhoun. On the 1880 AR census your Francis (children-Amanda, James) are listed as living with Asa and Betta. Would love to know what happened to Asa, said to have died in Scott Co. AR, but I have found nothing. Looks like Betta married a Francis Gould there, late 1880s. I do have some info on Amanda and believe I have visited her grave in Broken Bow, OK, even though there was no marker. She was buried next to daughter and son in law if I remember right. Will have to look that up. No info on Francis Allen Self Rodgers either. A Francis Rodgers m. A.M.Deaver in Conway, AR 1881?
Do you have any info on her or son-James Rodgers b/abt/1878 MS? Not much to go on here either.
As far as the Indian heritage is concerned, I have not found any documentations to support it and I have done a lot of research--rolls and other sources. Would really like to claim it--maybe later.
No accurate info on Benjamin Marmaduke Allen and Catherine Francis Mayhall being the parents of Asa Allen. Still hoping someone will come up with something valid.
Let's keep connected --I've been a little slow on the research lately also, but will try to do better.
