I do have an Asa Allen, but not an Asa T. No Margaret for a wife. This Asa
was likely to be the son of John Allen. He had wives Amelia and Elizabeth.
Sons Hudson Holley Allen and Russell J. Allen. Hudson Holly had a son, Rev.
Asa Franklin Allen born in GA.
Will named Wife, Mary; to son Asa, a slave named Moses; he also named among
others a son-in-law, Pleasant Holley.
Family came from Virginia through Georgia.

Subject: [ALLEN] Asa T, Allen
Asa T. Allen was my great great grandfather. He was born about 1818 in
Georia or South Carolina, and married Margaret Baker in 1839 in Cass Co. GA.
They are there on the 1850 census. They are in Texas in 1860, 1870 and
In Panola and Angelina Counties in 1860 and 70, and they are in Gregg Co.
TX (Longview) in 1880 and my great grandmother is listed with her first
husband (Maggie J. and William A. Bell and their infant daughter). Margaret
Allen died between 1880 and about 1891. Asa T. Allen died in 1893 in
Longview TX. Maggie's second husband was George Perkins and my grandmother
was their only child. Maggie Perkins died in 1891 in Gregg Co. TX. I don't
know where or when William A. Bell died, but he and Maggie had 3 girls.
Some people have told me that he is a son of Woodson Allen and Annis Palmer
(and a twin of their daughter Annis Allen who married Sherrod Gay). I do
not believe that is true as I have found info on line that states that Asa
Allen married a Mariah and went to Alabama and had kids there the same time
my Asa was having kids in Georgia and Texas. (I sure wish it was true as
there is a lot of info available on that Allen family).
Any info on my Asa T. Allen and/or Margaret Baker would be greatly
