David G Allen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 29, 1824
Death: Dec. 23, 1865

An 1850 census from Greene County, part of, Greene, Illinois shows David G. Allen with wife, Mary, and children: Marcus P. age 3 born in North Carolina and Mary E. age 2 born in Illinois. The family must have moved from NC to IL in ca 1847/1848 where another son, Adolphus, was born in ca 1853. David's first wife, Mary, must have died between 1853 and 1855 because he was again married to Permelia Bradley Knight on Nov 18, 1855 in Johnson Co., Missouri. Mary Allen's burial location is unknown. Permelia was previously married to Lucillius Knight on July 13, 1843 and it's believed Mr. Knight died before 1850 as Permelia Knight was shown living with her father, Thomas (1796-1882) Bradley, mother Elizabeth and her siblings on an 1850 Warrensburg, Johnson Co., Missouri census record. An 1860 Warrensburg, Johnson Co., MO census shows David & Permelia living with children Marcus age 13 NC, , Mary E. age 11 Ill, Martha M. age 9 Ill, Adalphus age 7 Ill, Sarah C. age 4 MO, John F. age 4 MO and Babe (probably Tommy) age 0 MO. An 1870 Warrensburg, Johnson Co., MO census (after David's death) shows Permelia Allen living with Allen children: Marcus age 23 NC, Adolphus age 17 Ill, Sarah age 13 Ill, Nannie age 13 Ill, and Tommy age 9 Ill. Since Sarah, Nannie (maybe Jonnie) and Tommy Allen were born after 1855, it's assumed they were David and Permelia's children and the census records differ as to where they were born. A Missouri death certificate for Sarah C. Allen Scroggs shows her parents as David Allen and Permelia Bradley and her birth location was Johnson Co., Missouri. It also seems their child, Sarah C., had a twin but census records are confusing since the records show a John F. in 1860 and a Nannie (female) in 1870. David Allen most likely served with the Union Army during the Civil War. Bio written by Fred Bradley
