My 2nd GGrandfather was John Morgan Allen. Proved he was born John M. Purks/Pinks . On the 1870 census with his Grandparents George and Malinda Allen of Magoffin County Kentucky. John married Catherine Clemons. They lived on South Fork and it seems in the early 1900s there was a lot of what I would call fueding going on. Most of my 1st GGrandfather's brothers were killed in gun play. This is truth and some stories and legends mixed in. I proved this line first with YDNA. Please contact me if family or just to talk Breathitt county/ South Fork. I have a lot of info already if you are interested. Looking for info on the Clayhole shooting and my Allen"s connection. Story is Norman Allen was there.
