In Reply to: Carl Allen by janie vicars of 1706

IN 1900 Carl and Caroline are living in Magoffin co. Ky. in 1910 Caroline is living in Russell co. as a widow
In 1900 CAroline and Carl say they have been married 14 years. which would put their marriage about 1886 with the first son being born in 1887.

in 1910 Caroline says she is a widow having been married 2 times. So here is one of two possible matches.

in 1880 there is a Caroline Allen age 17 the right age for Caroline Lucas with a young daughter named Mary only months old. There is a marriage for a Thomas Allen and Caroline Brown in Magoffin co. Ky 15 jun 1878. living with her father David Brown. it would make her marriage to Carl Allen possible that she remarried after Thomas and then married a Lucas before marrying Carl. that would be 3 marriages but sometimes they did not always tell the census taker the truth considering it none of their business. Especially if the marriage to Thomas did not last long.

The second possiblity is the in 1900 Carl and Caroline are livng in Magoffin co. Ky with a John lucas living below them on the same page. John Lucas was born in 1872.

in 1880 in Jefferson co. ky there is a John and Hannah Lucas who has two children named Carrie(short for Caroline) and a John both kids the right age to be the ones in 1900. Since Carl was born in 1840 he would be 40 years old in 1880. I could not find a 40 year old Carl Allen in Ky in 1880. so he had to have had another name before that. Joseph Allen is living next door to Caroline Brown Allen. he is 40 yers old.

just some thoughts on you Allen line
Good luck
