James Andrew All, son of James M. and Sarah E. Allen, married Maude Ester Holcombe, daughter of Obadiah Holcombe and Mary "Polly" Brigman Holcombe.

In 1910 Census: James is 33 and Maude is 30 and they have six children: Vannie (11), Herbert (9), Kenneth (7), Auslee or Azlee (5), Early (3), and Murphy (seven months). By 1920, they had added three more children: Annie (7), Orvile (5), and Viola (3). Vannie would have been 21 in 1920 and is not listed in the home with James and Maude.

Ann McCallister found a WW 1 draft registration card for James Andrew Allen dated September 12, 1918 in which he gives his age as 41 and birth date as September 20, 1876 and his wife's name as Maude Ester Allen, He was a self employed farmer.

Andrew and Maude are buried in the Whitaker Cemetery in Barnardsville where they have a dual headstone reading: Maude E. Holcombe 1880 - 1964 and James Andrew Allen 1877 - 1929.

I thank Ann McCallister, for the information she sent to me, confirming dates and information about the Holcombe and Allen families.
