Name: James H Allen
Birth Date: 15 Apr 1853
Birth County: Greenup
Father's name: Beverly Allen
Mother's name: Martha Brown
County of Residence: Greenup
Death Unknown: Last known record is the 1880 Census where he is recorded as living with the family in Greenup, Kentucky. Sometime after this date, according to a letter written by grandson Leslie Earl Allen, little was known about James Harvey Allen as he left for St. Louis, Missouri to get a job and was never heard from again. However is should also be noted that a son of his, Grover Cleveland Allen was born on December 23, 1892 in Quincy, Lewis, Kentucky, USA, therefore it is likely that he disappeared (and later died) sometime after that date.
Fact: Residence (1853) Greenup, Kentucky, United States
