Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 4, 1824
Death: Jul. 10, 1862

"Wife of Christopher Allen. Who departed this life July 10th 1862. Aged 38 years 9 months and 6 days."

Mariam was the wife of Colonel Christopher Blake Allen. Christopher is likely buried next to her here ? Christopher was born in 1814 and died in 1869.

They were married December 24, 1839 in Warren County, North Carolina.

They had ten children in Halifax Co., NC:

Mariah Crowell Allen *March 4, 1857
Daniel Billups Allen *January 21, 1841
Ann Benjamin Allen *May 11, 1842
Charles Skinner Allen *Jan 6, 1845
Lucretia Brown "Bernie" Allen *Dec 11. 1846
Thomas Whitmel Allen *April 5, 1848
Martha Elizabeth "Pattie" Allen *1851
Paul D. Allen *Oct 12, 1855
Linville Hendron Allen *June 27, 1857
John Alston Allen *Sept. 18, 1843

Burial: Old City Cemetery, Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina

The Bradford is named from the North Carolina Bradford Family which was prominent. It may be because these Colonists stayed together and came down from Colonial Virginia that these Bradfords were the same Family relation as William Bradford who came to America on "The Mayflower". It is likely so and needs more research.

There are also some Alstons related at Cemeteries in Chatham Co., NC on findagrave.com. Also maybe spelled Miriam ? Tomb says Mariam.

Notes for MARIAM BRADFORD ALSTON:
Thomas Allen notes: "Miriam" instead of Mariam was born in Warren County, North Carolina and died in Raleigh. The name Mariam is also used in her obituary and on her tombstone. She died giving birth to twins and is buried in the Old City (Raleigh) Cemetery in Raleigh on New Bern Ave, Morgan St., and Blount St. The twins are buried in the tomb with her. Her wedding date was recorded in Allen family Bible owned by Bettie Alston Allen Spivey. She was 15 years old when she married. Her obituary was in the Raleigh Standard July 16, 1862. Part of the obituary in the Standard, Raleigh, NC, July 16, 1862 reads: "Mrs. A. was a quiet, unobtrusive Christian, a kind neighbor and a most devoted wife and mother. She had been an acceptable (sic) member of the Methodist Church for a number of years. Her sorrowing husband and children mourn their loss, but they hope to meet her in a better world."

Mariam's Father was John Alston b Jun 15 1826 d Jul 15, 1862:

•Event: Will Written 29 Sep 1840 Halifax County, North Carolina Formed 1758 From Edgecombe County
•Note: 4/226 2
•Probate: Nov 1843 Halifax County, North Carolina Formed 1758 From Edgecombe County

Thomas Allen notes: John had a plantation 12 miles south of Littleton, NC.

This was approx near SR 1525 which is Jon Alston Rd and SR 1509 which is Odell-Litteton Rd.

He was an ensign in the 2nd Company, 3rd Regiment North Carolina Militia during the War of 1812. His will is in Halifax County, North Carolina Will Book No. 4, page 226.

I think he is at Alston Family cemetery in Littleton, NC. Here there are many other close Alston and Macon relatives.

Located in Halifax County, Spruills Bridge Road, State Road 1309. Take Highway 4 south of Littleton, go approx. 7 miles and turn right on Spruills Bridge near Airlie. This is the road between Littleton-Odell-Airlie. Go about 2-3 miles cross Spruills Bridge (aka crooked bridge) and go about ˝ mile. The cemetery is located 2-3/10 of a mile from the Warren County line. There is a gate on the right side going from the bridge. Go and follow the power line from about 1/10 of a mile. There will be a clump of trees on right. There are posts outlining the cemetery but no fence. These are the names on the plaque. In memory Gideon Alston 1765-1831 Frances Atherton 1770-1830

Mariam's Grandfather was John Alston b Feb 26, 1792 d Oct 1843:

Probate: Nov 1831 Halifax County, North Carolina Formed 1758 From Edgecombe County
In Halifax county, on the 10th inst., Gideon Alston, Esq., one of the
counsellors of State, of North Carolina, in the 65th year of his age.

At Alston Cemetery Littleton, Halifax NC

Mariam's Great Grandfather was Gideon Alston b 1765 d 1831
The Great Great Grandfather was Capt. John Gideon Alston 1734 - 1784. It was John Gideon who married with Anne Hunt Macon of the Macon family. All of this is well researched and published easily traceable.

Thomas Allen writes: Gideon was born at his father's home, lived on land inherited from his father near the Warren County line on the west side of Little Fishing Creek where he and his wife were buried. He was a soldier of the American Revolution and an extensive planter who owned over 1,000 slaves. In 1805 and 1806 he served as state Senator for Halifax County; he was also Councilor of the State of North Carolina from 1807-1830 (Jordan Kearney's notes).
He disliked holding public office and preferred to be with his family. He often advised Nathaniel Macon. From Alston/Allston book, "He delighted in all kinds of sport and owned the finest game chickens of that day and was the champion cock fighter of all the country." Also "He was also fond of fine horses and delighted in fox and deer hunting and boasted of having the finest packs of fox and deer hounds in the state."
He died at home in Edgecombe County according to Vital (Records) Statistics of Edgecombe County His will is in Halifax County, North Carolina Will Book No. 4, page 78.

There is also a Buck Spring Cemetery which is a Macon Cemetery associated with Nathaniel Macon who is there.

*** What is a KEY POINT is that Gideon's mother was Anne Hunt Macon who was close kin to Martha Washington. he was named Gideon after Gideon Hunt Macon and Gideon was named for Gideon Macon who was Martha Washington's Great Grandfather.

These Macons were all near the township of Macon, North Carolina not far from present day lake Gaston. This name was taken from the Royal Gaston Family of France which were Orleans. I also point out the township of Aurelian Spring in Halifax Co., NC. Some kin were there as well. The Aurelian and Orleans etymology are linked and is a reference that Orleans had sought to conquer the area. Aurelian comes from the Aurelian Emperors of Rome. The Romans were of course interested in conquest, land surveying and springs. Later we see Romans harnessing the springs in roman baths. At any rate I interject this clue. These were colonial times and the royal influence all throughout the region to increase territory for the various crown families in Europe.

There is a Macon Depot near Nathaniel Macon's home called Buck Spring. Nathaniel was in the US House of Representatives and US Senate. Macon Depot established 1839, 1881 and incorporated in 1889. One can find this by finding Nathaniel Macon Dr., State Road 1348 and also Old Macon Highway SR 1318. Another notable family figure was US Congressman Willis Alston, Jr. in Littleton, NC area. Alstons and Macons intermarried and both very prominent and historic families. Another place to note is Person's Ordinary in Littleton which was a family tavern serving bourbon whiskey. "Mosby Hall" of Thomas Person Little who also ran Person's Ordinary in Littleton, NC where these colonial revolutionary war figures drank bourbon and plotted theri Coup. The Webbs are Person kin.

Halifax Co. was particularly important because of the Halifax Resolves of April 12, 1776 which lead to the US Declaration of Independence. It is a very historic quiet little town though un-restored like Williamsburg, Virginia is. It is largely forgotten although a key piece of US history. This event occurred in Halifax Co., NC. The link between Halifax, NC and Alexandria , VA is via the Lee Resolution of June 7, 1776 about declaring independence from England. Richard Henry Lee who wrote it was the Great Uncle of Robert E. Lee. Both events directly preceded and lead to the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Other notable family figures involved were Willie Jones, Halifax Delegate who was kin to Orlando Jones. Frances Jones was the daughter of Orlando Jones and Martha Macon. Frances was the Mother of Martha Washington. This is the same Jones Family of Jones Orchard in Halifax Co. as the Macons ran all through this area. There are also Matthew Ransom and Robert Ransom. These are Kin to Ransom McBride. Anne Nancy "Ellen" McBride was Benjamin Davis Webb's Grandmother. Willie Jones lived at "The Orchard" Plantation in Halifax Co., NC. This was also not far from other Macon and Alston Property in adjacent Warren Co., NC. This is how Alexandria, VA and "Arlington Plantation" of Martha Washington in adjacent Arlington, VA are related to this part of North Carolina. These key Colonial figures travelled all throughout and drank bourbon together at Person's Ordinary in Littleton, NC. There is also "Mosby Hall" home of Thomas Person. Originally this area of North Carolina and Virginia were one territory before a State Line was drawn. These were Macon historic homes including that of Nathaniel Macon, "Buck Spring". At that time most of these colonial families all intermarried and so familial connections are abundant.

I did see on www.findagrave.com two other Allen Family cemetaries one in Willow Springs and the other in Falls both Wake Co in Raliegh where Christopher supposedly died. Both of these are likely family cemeteries. That in Falls, Wake Co looks promising but established in 1883 so they would be kin not direct. Sign mentions Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. Appears many Kin here and historic Alstons and Allens . Some of Christopher's children are here and he may be as well or it will lead to clues.

Notes for CHRISTOPHER BLAKE ALLEN:
Thomas Allen notes: Christopher was born in , Warren County, NC, and died in Raleigh, North Carolina He moved to Littleton and became a merchant. The 1850 census lists him as a merchant in Halifax County with an estate value of $650. On the 1850 census in Halifax County, NC, Susan Green, age 18, lived with them. About 1852,53 he moved from Littleton in Halifax County, North Carolina to Raleigh, North Carolina He became an agent for the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad. He was the first agent for Seaboard Air Line Railroad. The 1860 census lists him as an agent in Raleigh and states that the value of his real property was $200. In the obituary for his wife, Christopher Blake Allen is referred to as "Colonel". He died at age 52.
His three youngest sons -Thomas, Paul and Linville-married their first cousins.

The name Daniel "B." Allen was on family papers typewritten with no sources given.
From Marriage notices from Raleigh Register & North Carolina State Gazette, 1799-1825 is the entry Daniel born Allen married Lucretia Faulcon September 25, 1812.

JAMES ALLEN

James and Ann lived in Hanover Co.-VA where he was a church warden at St. Paul's. He was later one of a group that broke from the established church of England and formed the nucleus from which Rev. Samuel Davies and others were able to increase membership in the Presbyterian Church of Virginia. James and Ann apparently never moved, but his sons came into Cumberland County a number of years before the Revolutionary War and then prior to the Revolution moved to Prince Edward Co.-VA. It was during the 1750's and 60's probably. Many of these Allens were members of D. Archibald Alexander's congregations (Dr. Alexander was a famous Presbyterian preacher of this era. Two of James' sons, Charles and James, Sr., moved to Prince Edward County. Sons Benjamin, Daniel, and Richard lived in Cumberland County.

[Taken from: Virginia Tidewater Genealogy - Published Quarterly Vol. 20 Number 2 - June 1969 "Information on an Allen Family of Virginia" by John L. Patterson. The conversion of James is referred to in the following passage about the Southside Virginia Allens' in "The Life of Archibald Alexander, D. D. (p.178):
"They lived chiefly in Cumberland, but also in Prince Edward, and many of them were parishioners of Mr. Alexander. The root from which they all proceeded was (like various eminent persons in our memoir) a member of Mr. Davie's church in Hanover, and was converted, it is thought, under the missionary labors of Whitefield. Mr. Alexander heard from an eyewitness that while (sic) Whitefield was preaching, Mr. Allen fell at full length, as suddenly as if shot through the heart, and lay the remainder of the evening as one dead"[ Taken from: "Cherry Grove" A Brief Account of the Life and Family of James Watson Womack (1787-1844) of Cherry Grove and his families ancestral background (Ancestors mentioned include Womacks, Allens, Anderson, Watsons, Chambers, Massies and Poindexters by Egbert Hudson Womack at Hampshire House - Bronxville, New York - August 29, 1959.

He was certainly a member of the Cumberland Congregation at one time as were a number of his children.

JAMES ANDERSON ALLEN, SR

James Anderson Allen, Sr., was a faithful contributor on the pages of James Morton's account book up through 1792; after that he is no longer listed. James Allen, Sr., died in October 1793. Other members of the Cumberland Congregation were the John Mortons, John and Ann Nash, Elizabeth and Nathaniel Venable, the Woodsons, Womacks and Watsons - all of these are among those who moved into the Hampden-Sydney area in the mid- 1790's
James Allen, Sr., was a member of the Prince Edward Committee which on June 19, 1775, adopted resolutions condemning the actions of the English Governor of the Colony, Lord Dunsmore, in removing the gun powder from Williamsburg, but James, Sr. still at this time, "avowed unfeigned attachment and loyalty to the English king, George III." James later served on a county Committee of Safety formed in November of 1775 which implemented local organization and cooperation in the war effort. Clearly he was no longer loyal to the King.
James, Sr., was probably too old for active service in the Revolution, but he furnished supplies to the Continental Army. Many of his sons, brothers, nephews and sons-in-law were in the Virginia Militia in Prince Edward, Cumberland or Charlotte Counties. The James Allen Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Nottoway and Amelia Counties is named for James Allen, Sr., and is a tribute to his great efforts and contributions to this cause. The DAR "Patriot Index" gives the following information that shows the patriotic fervor of these early Allens': "The Allens of Prince Edward County were great patriots. James Allen, Sr. is called a patriot by virtue of the fact that he was on the Committee of Safety for Prince Edward County and that he supplied the Revolutionary forces from that area. In addition to this, the DAR Index list three of this sons and one son-in-law: I. James Allen, Sr. b. 7-7-1724; d. 1793; m. Elizabeth Sims PS VA. James Allen, Jr. b. CIR 1750; d. 11-28-1808; m.

Charles Allen b. 9-10-1748; d. 2-8-1816; M. Mary Venable COL. VA In addition to his war efforts, James, Sr., worked to keep Hampden-Sydney College open during the War. He and four other men were named to draw plans and let contracts for the building of Hampden-Sydney College in 1775. He was elected a Trustee of the Academy and College. A note on John Blair Smith, first president of Hampden-Sydney College says "With Smith, men of great probity, high public estimation, and private worth, were associated with the seminary. These names include Venable, James Allen, Sr. and Morton."
Dr. Archibald Alexander, in commenting on the Allen's has this to say: "James, the eldest, was on of the most venerable men I ever saw. When I came to the County, he was above seventy years and lived alone. He was more than six feet tall, slender, pale, of benignant countenance, with hair as white as snow. Most of his time was spent over a large family Bible, which lay open on a small table and which he often moistened with his tears." (A footnote says Dr. Alexander may have been mistaken about his age as James died at age 69 in October of 1793.
Dr. Alexander also mentions an incident that shows that James, Sr., had a sense of humor and humility. "His Son James, Jr. before his conversion, was often irascible and in public brawls. He was of great muscular power. Son James came home one day in a rage, threatening to flog a man who called his father an old hypocrite. His father said meekly, "Jemmy, my son, be not angry. I assure you it is the very thing I have suspected of myself for 20 years." James, Jr. later died a slow torturous death of cancer which began in his lip.
James, Sr. owned extensive holdings along the Briery River. His will is recorded in Will Book 2, page 197, in Prince Edward County Courthouse; numerous trans- actions involving selling and buying lands are recorded in the early deed books. Besides being an extensive landowner and owner of slaves, James, Sr., was active in public life. He represented Prince Edward County in the General Assembly in 1782 and was Justice of the County Court. He is described in "Notes on Southside by Walter Watson, as a man of intelligence and property. Grandsons Christopher and Daniel, the son of Daniel, inherited the property on which he lived.

JOHN GEORGE ALLEN
4-Apr-1856 - 04-Mar-1932

John George Allen was born in Benton County, Tennessee the 6th son of James Allen (1826-1901) and Mahala Ann (Brown) Allen (1828-1860). John Allen 1880 census of Tennessee page 62. John George "aka" "Johnnie Green" "John Green & "John A." Allen. Johnnie Green was first married to Elizabeth Reed on Sep. 30, 1880 in Benton Co.-TN, married by Joseph Allen, J. P. John and Elizabeth had a boy named Andrew that disappeared during WW-I and a girl named Sadie believed to have married a "Jim Jack Allen and moved to Texas and never returned. His married 2nd Martha Francis [Abbott] Allen on Sep. 4, 1895, by William Riley Kee, J. P. Their children: McKinley m. Beulah Speed, Homer m. Josephine Ervin, Hattie m. Carlos Blaylock, Claradell m. Commadore Reece, Minnie m. Luke Jordan, Hester died at 6 yrs, Arlie, Dennison m. Corine Sheridan, Bennie died at 18 yrs, Johnny Bee m. Gay Jordan and Guy m. Hazel Bonds.
Johnnie and Martha lived about two and one half (2 1/2) miles East of Trezevant on Big Buck and Little Buck Road. Johnnie Green was a farmer.
Grandpa Johnnie Green favored pictures of Abraham Lincoln. He practiced an old time ritual of touching his finger to his tongue and then gently rubbing an injury, scrape, bruise etc. and mumbling under his breathe while doing so. I am not sure but, I figure he was praying or repeating some secret incantation. At any rate the injury always seemed to get better right away.
Johnnie Greene Allen took sick, and about the same time his daughter Bennie came down with Typhoid Fever. I cannot remember what illness Grandpa had. Bennie died of the fever, and Grandpa died soon after.
John George Allen is a half-brother to Malinda Louise Allen, the third wife of his father-in-law Henry Franklin Abbott, the father of his second wife Martha Francis Abbott.

Martha: Aka "Tense" "Mary" Martha Francis married John George Allen a half-brother to her fathers third wife Malinda Louise Allen.
