Samuel T. Allen,- N.C. to Illinois
Posted by: Don Stowe (ID *****5058) Date: March 31, 2008 at 12:01:02
  of 780

Samuel T. Allen, born 1830, native of Randolph County or Montgomery County, North Carolina, is believed to have been a Captain in the Home Guard of either of the above counties. At the close of the Civil War he left the area and moved his family to Illinois. In North Carolina he owned a sizable plantation, in Illinois he did not own real property in 1870. He was a farmer in both locations.

I am pusuing a theory that he might have been forced to leave North Carolina because of his pro-union sentiments or actions. Any information proving or disproving this theory would be most appreciated.
