I am looking for a connection between Eliza and the Allen's of Houston and Galveston fame. She was briefly married to Sam Houston, her father's name was Colonel John Allen.

Jim,
The descendants of Rhody and Rhodum Allen have been told they are related to Eliza Allen, but I have not found the link. Rhody and Rhodum were both in Sumner county, TN and there are notes about Rhody in the minutes book of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church.
If you should find the link please contact me. Have you looked at her family's Bible? I have but could not determine a link.. Maybe you could. What line of Allens do you descend from? Theopolius?

Sandra Raupfer,
Thank you for your reply. I am still back tracking from Texas. My oldest known relatives are Roland and Sarah (Chapman) Allen of Orrville, NY. One son born there in 1819, John Kirby Allen. Also from Canaseraga, NY, another son, Augustus Chapman Allen Born there in 1806. Four other brothers and a sister along with the parents joined A.C. and J.K. in Texas by 1837. I do not, as yet know the connection to Colonel John Allen and Eliza of Tennessee. Eliza married Sam Houston and Sam was later a neighbor of the Texas Allens after leaving Eliza...

Thank you, but I think my Eliza would have been a little older. She was 19 when she married Sam Houston. Her father's name was John.

No, I'm sorry, I haven't tracked them down yet. Only a reference to their number and gender in the Handbook of Texas - online. Do you have any upline information about these Allen's in New York or Pennsylvania before coming to Texas?

I believe my line was in Nacogdoches around that time. I'm very new at this and have yet to actually connect them to me, missing one generation. I think your people are Eliza's family and that is who I would like to connect to in NY or Penn. after I connect to A.C. and J.K. It's quite possible that my family historians have it entirely wrong and I will connect with the Austin family, but I don't think so.

Can you by any chance tell me the name of Augustus Allen's sister? There are some in my family that think she was Nancy M. Allen (5/7/1826) who married Samuel Green Born. Do you have any info?
