ALLEN, Archibald. R.102. 5 November 1840. Putnam County, Illinois. Archibald ALLEN declares he was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, and when an infant removed to Faquar [Fauquier]. He will be 90 on 7 February next. He moved to Washington County, Maryland, the fall after the capture of Lord Cornwallis's army [Cornwallis surrendered Oct. 19, 1781], resided in Maryland four years, moved to Nelson County, Kentucky, for 18 or 19 years, and then to Indiana. In 1828 he moved to Illinois. In 1780 he belonged to the 10th class of militia of Faquar County which was called into service. He procured a substitute who served for him two months. In 1781 the tenth class was again called into service and he was in the company of Capt. Charles Shelton in the regiment of Col. Elias Edmonds. He marched from Faquar Court House to below Richmond where they joined the main army under Gen. Muhlenberg and Gen. Lafayette. They then marched to Albemarle County where they were joined by reinforcements under Gen. Wayne, and then through Richmond in pursuit of the British to about ten miles of Williamsburg where he was discharged, having served two months and seven days. When he was going home he was placed by Capt. Shelton as a guard over a wagon and team which had been pressed into service and was about to be returned. Isaac D. GLENN of Putnam Co., Illinois, declares he has known Archibald ALLEN 22 years in Indiana and Illinois. In Indiana he heard Yelley KENDALL say he saw ALLEN on his return from the army. Rejected for insufficient length of service.
