Hi, I'm not sure what or who led Shadrack and Nancy to Orange Co. IN from VA. There is always the question of why there? Thomas may have already settled in IN and influenced the move of Shadrack...I don't really know. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a connection yet...If I find one I would be glad to let you know..Nancy

Did Shadrack Allen who went to Orange Co., IN ever live in Buncombe Co., NC, and if so, was he related to Daniel Allen, b c1756? Do you have ages of John and Joseph, brothers of Shadrack? I have a John, b c1780, and Joseph, b.c1778-82, who married Turner sisters. They lived in Buncombe and Yancey Counties, NC. Any help appreciated.

I am trying to trace the McCorkhill, or McCorkill, surname beyond my great great grandfather. He died in Hamilton County, OH in 1840. I believe he may have had a brother named William who also lived in Hamilton County. It is possible they came from Kentucky or North Carolina.

Allen's in NC of 1700's

My family came to Shelby Co., TN in 1835 from Beaufort Co., NC. Thomas Allen (1787-1848) was the head of this group. He was the son of Watler Allen (b. c1762) who married Jemina Pearce (b. 1765). Walter's father was John Allen (b. c1742). My family believes that John had brothers Joseph and Shadrack but we have no proof. We further believe that their father was named John Allen but we know nothing else about him such as where he was born, etc. We know the family owed land in Beaufort, Craven, Hyde, and Pitt Counties during the 1700's. If you could provide any further information it would be greatly appreciated. We have some names of other Allen researchers that you may wish to contact as well. Thank you, AAA

The parents of Joseph were Zachariah Allen and Martha UNK. This is all I know for now, but I will let you know if I find more.

Thomas is my ancestor. He married Elizabeth Bethell.
