      Longtime Allen family researcher Jerry Allen descends from Joseph Allen [Bet 1755/1765-1829 Moore County, NC] and Y-DNA matches connect him back to Joseph Allen of Orange County, NC. Joseph [of Orange] left a will in 1770 listing the following heirs: wife Sarah and children Elizabeth, Sarah, John, William, Daniel, George, Joshua, Solomon, Samuel, Elisha and Joseph. It is believed that the child Joseph was the Joseph who lived in Moore County, NC. Joseph [of Moore] was a large landowner on Cabin Creek and can be found in numerous records in Moore County from the late 1780's until his will was proven in Feb 1829. Joseph named his wife Elizabeth (Parker) and the following children in his will: daughter Elizabeth Reynolds, and sons James, John, Joseph P., Mark and Reuben Allen. Through exhaustive research and DNA matches, Jerry has been able to trace this Allen line back to George Allen who was born in Britain around 1625 and immigrated to VA as a young man.
