Bill and Loydean ALLEN,, 1-14-1999

Our Joseph S. ALLEN as born in 1809 in what we believe to be Grant county, Kentucky. He emigrated with his father and brother to what became Scott county Illinois about 1819.

In 1849 Joseph headed for California. In Nevada county, California, he applied for a federal pension for service in the 1846-1847 Mexican war with his Illinois regiment. His 1887 death notification to Washingon stopping his pension also originated in Nevada county, California.

We suspect his brother James Givens ALLEN was visiting him in Nevda county in 1880 as we have been unable to locate James in the Missouri federal census of that year where his wife and offspring appear.

Any leads on Joseph or James would be greatly apreciated!
