CHARLES WESLEY PIPPENGER, b. 7912 Montgall Street, Kansas City,

Memorial Park Cemetery, m. 11 October 1922 in Olathe, Johnson County, Kansas, to Velma Pearl ALLEN, b. 3 May 1902 in Springtown, Flint Township, Benton County, Arkansas, d. 14 July 1990 in Kansas City, Missouri. Daughter of
ROBERT EDWARD ALLEN, b. 17 January 1879 on a farm near Rhea's Mill, Washington County, Arkansas, d. 7 May 1958 in Kansas City, Missouri, m. 30 August 1900 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to Mary Ellen LEWIS, of Wheeler, Arkansas. Son of
SAMUEL GILLION ALLEN, farmer, b. 15 August 1829 in Carroll County, Tennessee, d. 3 January 1913 in Rhea's Mill, Washington County, Arkansas, m. 1 March 1876, by John Clements, M.G., in Washington County, Arkansas, to Mary Ann Hicks, from Stephenville, Erath County, Texas. Mary Ann Hicks was a daughter of Samuel Roberson Hicks who married 28 APR 1844 to Grizzel Ann Brison (Bryson). Grizzel died 3 NOV 186, and S.R. married second to Sarah Allen, and he died 9 NOV 1867. Samuel G. Allen served in the Confederate Army, Company E of the 4th Regiment, Tennessee Calvary; enlisting at Dixon's Springs, Trousdale County, Tennessee, to serve three yeras. In 1862 he bought 25 acres of land in Hunt County, Texas. As late as November 1874, Samuel G. Allen paid school taxes in Greenville, Hunt County, Texas. Son of
THOMAS ALLEN, farmer, b. c.1801 in North Carolina, d. prob. Washington County, Arkansas, m. Lucy. Son of
SAMUEL ALLIN, b. c.1765 in Virginia or Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, will dated 15 May 1827 in Carroll County, Tennessee. He is thought to have married Mary Rogers, and had 11 children. Of who, Thomas is the youngest son.
No further lineage. The 1860 Census for Hunt County, Texas appears to
provide clues to this family. Isaac Allen is head of household 129 (a farmer,
age 66, b. in N.C.), living next to Thomas Allen who heads household 130.
This Thomas Allen has a son Samuel G. Allen among the eight children listed.
These same children are found with Thomas Allen as head of household 93
on the 1850 Census for Desoto County, Mississippi. The 1880 Census for Marr's Township,
Rhea's Mill Postoffice, Washington County, Arkansas, shows Thomas Allen, b. c.1801 in
North Carolina, a widower, is living with the Samuel G. Allen family. The birthplace for
Thomas's father is given as Virginia. Thus, we can track
movement of our Allen family, starting in Virginia (pevious to 1800); North Carolina (1801); Carroll County, Tennessee (1821); DeSoto County, Mississippi (1850); Hunt County, Texas (1860); and Washington County, Arkansas by c.1870.
