Looking for parents of my Ggrandfather Alexander Wallen (b. abt 1822 in VA, d. Oct 17 1959 in Hawkins Co. TN). He married Matilda Bloomer and had children Jessie Doyle and Myrtle. He then married my gGrandmother Addie "Adeline" Barnette on Feb 14 1909. Alexander and Addie had 17 children; Charlie, Gilbert, Martha Jane, Maude Ethel, Rosey Bell, John "Silas", Edgar, Victoria, Lula Mae, Faye Hellen, Henderson, Frank, Macie, Eckel, Fred, Mary, and Ray. It is a long standing rumor in the family that Alexander may have been adopted or born out of wedlock and that his father may have been a Berry. If you have any information on the parents of my gGrandfater, Alexander Wallen, I would greatly appreciate the knowledge. Thanks in advance.
