There are various years of birth given for Mary in the censuses 1834,1842,1844. The 1900 Census states she was born in Kentucky December 1844, her place of birth was always the same.

Mary's approximate date of death is known only from a recollection of her grandson, Thomas Hubert Allen, that she died when her youngest son, Charlie Cleveland Allen, was 15 and in bed with polio. In 1902 Charlie (my Great Grandfather) was 17. Given this information and the ambiguous nature of John's and Mary's death records, the death date assigned to John could be that of Mary.

The original headstone was in poor condition. Grandson Gordon Beauford Allen had it replaced with a new one at the same time he purchased his own headstone for the family plot. The new stone has no dates on it.

This information is contributed by Brent, the Grandson of Thomas Allen, and additional information added by Denise, the Granddaughter of Ures Allen.
