In Reply to: ALLEN family from Accomack County, Virginia by George Garmer of 29394

Hi George, You may want to check out resources in the Worcester County Maryland area. I am also an Allen descendant from the same area. My GG Grandfather was Rev James P Allen born in Worcester County MD in 1811. He married Ann W Tatham of Accomack County Va. I believe that his father or grandfather was born in Accomack Co Va. Accomack and Worcester Counties are adjacent to each other. The miles files does not have much information on my Allen ancestors and what they do have is incorrect. As a minister, my gg grandfather was a circuit rider and ended up in Philadelphia, dying there in 1850. You may also want to check out the site for genealogy of methodist ministers.Perhaps our Allen ancestors were relatives since they came from the same area.
