My father - Lawrence Eskridge

My goal is to provide accurate up-to-date information for my family members, as well as linking them up, parents, spouse and children listed. However, I have added some very close friends and/or neighbors. If my children or grandchildren one day start to search they will find reliable information on our family.

Hi! I'm not sure if I sent you a message about posting documentation to support the edits you submitted or not?? If so, disregard! I had a few extra minutes today so I researched Woodrow's birth certificate and posted it to his memorial so I could go ahead and approve the edit. I'm not sure if I'll have time to research Helen or not so you can go ahead and post her birth certificate info on her site. Thanks!

Research for the J. J. Allen Family:

Don Maxwell

Webpage for Haynes/Conn

Webpage for William B. Allen
8/16/2011 1843 Josiah Joseph Allen was born Feb 29 1843 in Hamilton County, TN (source: an old obituary) Willie/JJ Obit Bible cover
8/16/2011 1850 They are living in Hamilton County, TN

Family Number 630
Robert HAYNES, 22 yr. old male, farmer, b. in TN, married within the year
Sarah HAYNES, 19 yr. old female, b. in TN, married within the year
Family Number 631
Letty HAYNES, 56 yr. old female, b. in TN
Elizabeth ALLEN, 26 yr. old female, b. in TN
Joseph ALLEN, 7 yr. old male, b. in TN
Jane ALLEN, 6 yr. old female, b. in TN
William ALLEN, 3 yr. old male, b. in TN
Family Number 632
Robert Conn, 50 yr. old male, b. in TN, carpenter, property worth $500
Abagal Conn, 41 yr. old female, b. in TN
Family Number 634
Mary Conn, 41 yr. old female, b. in TN
James Haynes, 21 yr. old male, b. in TN, carpenter


9/6/2011 1860 They should be living in Hamilton County, TN

Ooltewah, Hamilton County, TN, Family Number 72
Robert Conn, 63 yr. old male, b. in TN, Cabinet workman, property worth $350/$150
Abagail Conn, 49 yr. old female, b. in TN, Housewife
Mary Conn, 52 yr. old female, b. in TN, Housewife
John P. McKenzie, 9 yr. old male, b. in TN

Still haven't found Elizabeth, J J or William in 1860. According to Elizabeth's obit, they moved to Louisiana in 1860. There is a community in Chicot County named Louisiana, so it is possible it is Arkansas, but the last child Fitz H. is listed as being born in Louisiana. However, they still have not been located on the 1860 census, so it is possible they were in transit.
08/25/2011 1866 Joseph J. Allen married Elizabeth Little in Hamilton County, TN - 19 Sep 1866
( - Tennessee Marriages, 1796-1950)

William H. Allen married Aggie Allen in Hamilton County, TN - 25 Apr 1867
( - Tennessee Marriages, 1796-1950)
This is probably the correct William, however since he is single in 1870, she probably died between 1867 and 1870.


9/6/2011 1870

Checked all ALLEN heads of household in the US, age 20-30, who were born in TN and found only ONE possible record:

Family #111 - Gain Landing, Railroad Township, Chicot County, AR:

Joe ALLEN, 28 yr. old male, b. in TN (1842)
Elizabeth ALLEN, 21 yr. old female, b. in TN (1849)
Will ALLEN, 2 yr. old male, b. in TN (1868)

5 households away is Wm. ALLEN, 22 yr. old male, laborer, b. in TN living with the John Thompson family.

Notes: The only problem with this Joe ALLEN family is the son being named Will instead of Neddie N. It would help if we could find a death certificate for Will/Neddie. I searched for ALLEN, ALLIN, ALIN, ALEN, KENNEDY, HAYNES, and CONN (only Robert and Abigail Conn were found).
Family #102 - Gains Landing, Rail Road Township, Chicot County, Arkansas:

G. AMBURN (AUBURN), 40, M, W, Black Smith, 400/100, TN
Elizabeth AMBURN, 45, F, W, TN
Mary L. AMBURN, 42, F, W, TN
Sarah A. AMBURN, 15, F, W, TN
Jas B. AMBURN, 10, M, W, TN
Fitz H. AMBURN, 4, M, W, LA

9/6/2011 1874

William B. F. ALLEN married Elizabeth Ann (Bettie) Warner 9 Mar 1874 in Sevier County, Arkansas
8/16/2011 1874 JJ Allen and Sarah J. Davis were married in Sherman, Grayson County, TX (4 Aug 1874) (source:
8/20/2011 1876 Notes: JJ and Sarah Allen apparently moved to Montague County shortly after their marriage as his obituary states that "He [joined with] the Methodist Episca. . . 19 years ago at the . . . school house at Brushy, . . ,. were but few people in [the] county and people came for . . . and 9 miles to Brushy church, . . . self lived at the time, about 3 [miles] distant. During his 20 years Christian experiance." So, he either already lived there and Sarah influenced him to join the church or they moved there when they married.

9/6/2011 1880 JJ lived in Montague County, TX:

Josiah J. ALLIN, 36 yr. old male, farmer, b. in TN, m/f b. TN TN (1844)
Sarah A. ALLIN, 25 yr. old female, b. in UT, m/f b. IN IN (1855)
Neddie N. ALLIN, 12 yr. old male, b. in TN
Sarah Jane ALLIN, 4 yr. old female, b. in TX
Emma E. ALLIN, 2 yr. old female, b. in TX
Hunter GLANCE, 24 yr. old male, farmer, b. in SC

Notes: Neddie N. was born in TN. Need to find his death certificate and/or where he is in 1900.

Gabriel Amburn and Elizabeth still lived in Chicot County, AR:

Family #473 - Railroad Township, Chicot County, Arkansas:

G. AMBURN, 50, M, W, Blacksmith, 400/100, TN, SC, NC
Elizabeth AMBURN, 55, F, W, wife, Keeping House, TN, VA, TN
J. B. AMBURN, 21, son, Laborer on farm, M, W, TN, TN, TN
R. F. AMBURN, 13, son, Laborer on farm, M, W, LA, TN, TN
Jacob POWERS, 34, boarder, M, W, PA, PA, PA

Picture of Gabriel Amburn and family, probably after the death of Elizabeth.

8/16/2011 1880s JJ and Sarah lived in Sunset, Montague County, TX

9/6/2011 1889

The following article was found in The Arkansas Methodist: "Amburn -Sister E. J. Amburn suffered nineteen months from Paralysis and died July 19, 1889. Elizabeth J. Hanes was born near Knoxville, Tenn., Feb. 10, 1824. married to Wm. B. Allen Feb. 1842. He died 1847 leaving her with Jos. J., Eliza J., and W.B.F., who are still living. She was married to G. Amburn in Aug. 1853, moved to Louisana 1860, and to Chicot County Arkansas 1870. From this marriage came Sallie, Jas. B., Frankie, and Henry. Sallie and Frankie gave their mother a joyful greeting above. Sister Amburn was raised in the Presbyterian Church, joined the M. E. C. S., at Holly Grove 1873. Bro. Amburn is greatly bereaved, but he knows that he shall meet her, Sallie and Frankie where there is not more sorrowing. - Ben McGhee."
(She is buried in Old Grange Cemetery in Chicot County, Arkansas.)

8/16/2011 1900 Widow Sarah lived in Montague County, TX:

Charly PALMER, May 1850, 50 yr. old male, m. 1 year , farmer, b. in don't know, m/f b. unknown unknown (1850)
Sarah A. PALMER, Apr 1855, 45 yr. old female, b. in UT, m/f b. PA IA (1855)
Sady WRIGHT, Jan 1877, 23 yr. old female, widowed, b. in TX
Walice ALLEN, Mar 1886, 14 yr. old male, b. in TX
Laura ALLEN, May 1889, 11 yr. old female, b. in TX
Hallie ALLEN, Mar 1891, 9 yr. old female, b. in TX
Joe ALLEN, Feb 1893, 7 yr. old male, b. in TX




Notice that the subject of this bio is "the son of William and Mary (KILLINGSWORTH) ALLEN; he a farmer, born at Knoxville, Tenn., in 1799, and dying in Hillsboro, Ill., in 1862; she also a native of Knoxville, born in 1824, and still living; they were the parents of eleven children." I found one good family tree for the couple, but it doesn't mention Knoxville. However, the bio was written before 1895 and I tend to believe it before current research. Mary is younger than him, so he may have been married before her and if so could be the g-grandfather of J. J. Allen or a grand uncle?

An F. M. Allen is listed in the Texas Confederate Pensions - App# 02564 - Lee County. Recommend ordering a copy to see if it fits or not. (There is a Dr. Frank Allen buried in Falls County - 1832-1900).

There is a Joseph Allen - App #08678 - Falls County but probably not him.

8/16/2011 Elizabeth Allen - Birth: 1830 Death: 1898; Burial: Elmwood Cemetery, Bowie
Montague County, Texas - Plot: B (fits closer to the age from the 1850 census and maybe she got younger as she went along)

William J. Allen - Birth: Sep. 4, 1847 Death: Mar. 10, 1925, Briscoe County
Texas; Burial: Resthaven Cemetery, Quitaque, Briscoe County, Texas - Plot: B 4 S 1 L 5 (no death certificate found) - found Confederate pension application for him that states he was born in Washington County, Texas.

William J. Allen married Daizy L. Staggs, 27 May 1894 - Bowie, TX; it appears this couple is living in Tyler, Smith County, TX. He is age 31 and she is age 24.

F. M. Allen married M. M. Hopwood - 19 Jun 1870 - Lincoln County, TN


William J. Allen death certificate (18 Nov 1849-14 Jan 1937) - is on 1930 census with wife Mary K., married at ages 28 and 20, they are ages 81 and 68, both born in TN. Daughter living with them is Ida L. Harden, divorced, age 45, born in AR and a grandson, George H. Sinclair, age 21, born in Texas.

Edwards Family Cemetery/Grayson Co., KY
I came across a record indicating Moses Edwards (Abt 1762-1847) was buried at the Edwards Family Cemetery and Mary (Tweedle) Edwards (1780-1864)died at Short Creek, Grayson County, KY, where the cemetery is located. Any possibility that they are there?
