Joshua B Allen's mother is listed as Nancy Allen. Sometimes it is listed as Nancy Woodsmall. I know that Charles A. Allen (1825-ish) (father of Arthur Allen) is linked to him somehow, possibly as a brother. Charles married Sophia Campbell.
These are Allens all linked with Lovingston, VA, Nelson County, VA, and specifically Massie's Mill in Nelson County, VA.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
