Yancey County marriage index show the marriage of Wilson McW. Allen, 25 to Nancy E. McCanless on Nov. 3, 1878. The marriage record itself has not survived, so we do not have the name of their parents. I do not find a death record for a Nancy or Jane Allen that would fit.
I do find a death record on July 5, 1945 for a Wilson Allen who is son of Nat Allen and Jane McMahan. This is the index only. You would need to get the actual record to make sure this is the right one.
Dr. Bailey in "Heritage of the Toe River Valley", indicates that Nancy E. Allen's parents were James E. McCanless and Jane E. his wife. They are on the 1860 & 1870 census with Nancy E. being age 1 in 1860.
James E. McCanless was son of David McCanless and wife Nancy. David was Clerk of Court from about 1854 to 1869.
Article indicates that parents of Wilson Allen were Nathaniel and Jane Allen.
Nathaniel, born abt 1815 was son of Adoniram Allen II and his wife Lucinda.
Hope this is of some help.
