I am searching for the origins of my great-grandfather Allen Spence (March 29, 1853- April 22, 1925) According to his death certificate (Halifax County, NC) he was born in Virginia. Family stories tell how he use to "wash his hands" in clouds of the Blue Ridge as a boy. My grandmother told me he followed the Roanoke River to Weldon, NC when he was about 18 years old. There he met and married Mary Elizabeth Shearin in 1881. When I followed the river up stream, I ran into Carroll and Floyd Counties. The death certificate lists Allen's parents as Allen Spence and Sarah Stephenson, both from Virginia. In Death Records of Carroll County 1854-1896 (Ronald W. Hall) I found a listing by the parents -Isham and M.F. Spence of Carroll County for their 12 year old daughter-Lucy A. Spence, who died in Sept. 1885. Witnesses included Allen Spence and Sarah Stephenson. Can you help me with the connection with Allen and Isham? Also, I can find reference to Aaron Spence but not an Allen Spence from the correct time period. My great-grandfather named his 1st born son Allen Aaron, but I can find no written record of his own middle name being Aaron. Thank you for your time and consideration.
