In response to the query concerning Mary Wallen, I am descended from Elias Wallen and Mary Kerby Wallen. I believe that the Mary Wallen you are interested in was actually the daughter of Elias' son, Alexander Wallen (from whom I am also descended), and Margaret (Boyle) Wallen. I have a year of Birth for Mary as 1849. Mary married Robert McWha, an elderly retired baker in Dresden. They were the parents of one son, John. He married Mary Ribble and they had two children, William D. and Louise McWha. I can trace our branch of the Wallen lineage back to County Donegal in Ireland (Ebenezer Wallen), circa 1700, if you are at all interested in the Wallen history.
