Searching for the parents of Benjamin Bugg, b. ca 1812 in Mecklenburg County, VA, married in 1834 Mary Allen b. ca. 1814, daughter of Lucy S. Allen & ____________. What was Lucys maiden name and who was her husband? Lucy had another daughter, Jane who married James Adams in 1835 in Mecklenburg County. Believe she had at least one son, name unknown. May have had other children. Mary and Benjamin Bugg and Lucy Allen moved to KY, TN and settled in Alabama.

Would like to exchange information with anyone researching these families

Surnames: Adams, Allen
i have a Lucy Adams marrying Thomas Allen in mecklenburg in 1796. I have Lucy's dad as James Adams. i cannot find Thomas Adams dad/tie-in. He seems to die after a few kids born.

I believe I am of this line.

If you have any info. on a male having been born to this couple, please let me know. I think the Allen boy may have gone to live with James Adams after Thomas Allen died?

Ronnie, try and dig up what you can about Sarah/Sally Adams and Lucy Adams.

Lucy Marries Thomas Allen in Mecklenburg in 1796. They have some kids (not clear how many) and Thomas dies.

DNA says we match to "Allen" via paternity. There is a Sam Doyle Allen that we match to 37/37 markers (90+ % chance of common dad within 8 generations). Sam Doyle Allen's line is from NC (Ephraim Allen). We need to try and figure out if there is:

A) An Allen husband for Sarah/Sally Adams that went unrecorded. Maybe William Adams came from there. I think William is named as "son" of Sarah in a will

B) Where Thomas Allen is from and whether he had a son William. In the Mecklenbug will book, there is a listing of "Descedents" for the dead guys. "Lucy" and "William" seem to be listed for Thomas Allen.

My working theory is that Thomas Allen marries Lucy Adams. They have son William and maybe other kids. Thomas dies. Lucy, William and some blend of kids (Alfred and James?) live with Sarah/Sally in 1820 census? in 1830 census Lucy is living next door?

Was William Adams born William Allen and ended up an "Adams" by moving in with them?

There were a ton of Allens moving through Mecklenburg. None were around when Thomas Allen died? Which Allen branch did he belong to?

It may be that the Lucy you refer to was Lucy Adams who Married Thmas Allen in 1796 (his second marriage). He appears to pass away @ 1816 and then everything goes blank.

I think Lucy had brother Richard and Sister Sally and Father James Adams who fought in Revolution and was "a cousin of Presidnet Adams". I think that one is a stretch.
