Who is Matthew's father? and who did he marry? Matthew Wallen was born in VA probably Lee Co area 1770 ~ 1778. He is listed in the Wilder book on Wallen genealogy. His name appears on the personal property tax records in Lee Co in 1795 and 1809. It appears that he then moved the short distance to Hawkins Co TN, and sold land to David Rogers in 1824. His final appearance was in Whitley Co KY in the 1830 census. His children were James, Stephen, Elisha, John, Matthew, and Milly. The children settled in Estill Co KY. Matthew once lived on the west side of KY road in Powell's valley TN within the Wallen lands. The two obvious candidates for Matthew's father appear to be Elisha the longhunter or his brother Thomas Wallen. Any info or opinions (or even guesses) would be appreciated.
