HENRY ALLEN, son of WILLIAM ALLEN and ANN STUART, was born February 2, 1808 in Virginia, and died November 13, 1849 in Scioto County, Ohio. He married ABIGAIL MASSIE, daughter of JEPTHA MASSIE and ANNA MEADOWS, November 6, 1832 in Jackson County, Ohio. She was born December 16, 1814 in Monroe County, Virginia (now West Virginia), and died January 2, 1881.

Notes: (These notes come from Bill Allen and are from something titled "Henry and Abigail Massie Allen" by Shirley McCoy Smith):

†††††"Henry Allen (1808-1849) and Abigail Massie (1814-1881) were married November 6, 1832, in Jackson County, Ohio - he, age 24 and she, 17.

†††††"Abigail was born December 16, 1814, in Monroe County, Virginia (now West Virginia on Virginia border) of Jeptha Massie and Anna Meadows. At one time the family was in Greenbrier County, adjacent to and north of Monroe. Sometime after Abigail's birth and prior to 1820 (during her first five years), the family moved from Monroe County to Jackson County, Ohio, along with some of Jeptha's brothers. Abigail was said to be a relative of Henry Massie, founder of Portsmouth, Ohio.

†††††"Henry Allen was born February 2, 1808, in Grayson County (now Carroll County), Virginia, one of 11 children of William Allen and Ann Stuart. In 1791, William Allen bought 400 acres near the head of Paul's Creek in southern Carroll County south of the village of Fancy Gap, which is south of Hillsville. It was on this farm where William and Ann's children -- including Henry -- were reared. William died July 12, 1823 and is thought to be buried on his farm, which was sold in 1825. In that year, when Henry was 17, the widowed Ann and most of the children (some married and some still at home) migrated to that part of Virginia which is now West Virginia. They remained there four or five years before moving to Jackson County, Ohio -- some in 1830 and the rest shortly thereafter.

†††††"In 1830 brothers James, Robert, and Henry (age about 22) came to Jackson County from, one account says, Fayette County (now West Virginia). Another account says that Robert lived in adjoining Raleigh County (now West Virginia), apparently on or near Marsh Fork of the Coal River possibly near Glen Daniel just west of Beckley. So, apparently, the Allen families lived in either Fayette or Raleigh or perhaps some families in each.

†††††"In Jackson County the brothers settled on adjoining farms along Hewitt's Fork in Jefferson Township west of Oak Hill (SR 279 runs along most of Hewitt's Fork). Later came siblings William, Isaac, and Anna and their mother (who died there May 1839). Another sister and her husband, John and Nancy Allen Clark, also came to Jefferson Township, possibly as early as 1829. The 1840 Jefferson Township census shows five Allen brothers -- Isaac, James, William, Robert, and Henry -- living on adjoining farms.

†††††"Carr Allen, Henry's older brother, stayed in Carroll County (at least for a while before moving to what is now West Virginia) and became the grandfather of brothers Sidna and Floyd Allen, who were involved in the 1912 Carroll County Courthouse shooting tragedy in Hillsville, Virginia.

†††††"In Jackson County, Isaac married Rachel Massie, sister of Abigail; Allen brothers married Massie sisters.

†††††"Henry and Abigail's eight children were all born on their Jackson County Hewitt's Fork farm before the family moved to Scioto County, Ohio, in 1848, sixteen years after their marriage. The move to Winter Road, Madison Township, Scioto County was one of only a few miles, as Jefferson Township, Jackson County, is only two townships away from Madison Township, Scioto County. The late Lyle Bonzo, great-grandson of Henry and Abigail, told that the couple's 10 or 11 year old son William walked behind the wagon all the way from Virginia to Madison Township. William no doubt DID walk behind the wagon, but what Lyle didn't know was that they moved from just across the county line, not straight from Virginia.

†††††"According to Lyle, they owned an entire section (640 acres) of Madison Township land (Section 24). They owned and cleared nearly all the land along Winter Road, including what was later their son William's place, adjoining theirs. Henry built their house, a two-story log with shed kitchen, on the south side of Winter Road by a spring. A foundation can still be found there today for either the house or barn. The house and barn sat beside a small creek which crosses Winter Road at a bend in the road. The house burned sometime after Henry's and Abigail's deaths. The story goes that it accidentally caught fire when sons of Alva Ethan Allen, Henry and Abigail's grandson, set fire to dead grass on the place to flush out a rabbit they were hunting. Alva Ethan, son William and Hannah, and his wife and children lived on his parents' place after their deaths.

†††††"Henry was a shoemaker by trade but farmed in Scioto County. He died, however, November 13, 1849, from pneumonia the next year after moving there, at the age of 41. His daughter Emily was 14, and his son William was 12 when Henry died. William's daughter, Elizabeth Allen Bonzo, told that Henry caught a cold which turned into pneumonia after being out in a cold rain helping a sow give birth. He was buried on the north side of Winter Road on his farm in the first of three graves now at the site, which Abigail intended to be the start of a family cemetery.

†††††"Elizabeth also told about the family's struggle for survival following Henry's death. When he died, the house hadn't been completed and the farm not well established, and the widowed Abigail and children found themselves near starvation. To make some money the girls would stay at the homes of neighbors to help out when a child was born. It was told that Abigail traveled miles to near Stockdale in Pike County, Ohio, where wild turkeys roosted in a grove of trees. Before dawn she would knock turkeys from low branches with a pole in order to have meat for their table.

†††††"Some years after the Civil War, Abigail sold the farm. It is unknown what year she sold out, but the two graves beside Henry's, those of grandchildren, are dated 1871. The 1870 Madison Township census shows Abigail, 56, still there with only a grandchild at home, and an 1875 property map shows her still owning the land. But the 1880 Pike County, Seal Township, census shows her at age 66 living with their youngest child, David, 34, his wife, Margaret Irwin Allen, 24, and their three children. Henry and Abigail's oldest child, Anna Allen Downing, and her family also lived in Seal Township, Pike County, near David.

†††††"So, Abigail apparently left Winter Road between 1875 and 1880. A 1900 Madison Township map shows Fred Winter, for whom the road is named, owning the property with the Allen house and graves.

†††††"Abigail died 31 years after Henry, on January 2, 1881, at the age of 66. Her granddaughter, Nancy Elizabeth White, was 12 at the time. Abigail is buried in Barger Cemetery on the farm of George and Anna Allen Downing along the Scioto River between Piketon and Waverly on Piketon Lower River Road. Today the cemetery is on the property of a Ryder family.

†††††"Also buried there are four of Henry and Abigail's grandchildren -- David's children who died before the family moved to Clinton County, Ohio. In the same cemetery is George Downing buried by his first wife, Elizabeth Barger Downing. No stone for second wife, Anna Allen Downing, is found there, but she is believed to be buried elsewhere on the farm, possibly in a second cemetery.

†††††"The Madison Township census for 1850, the year following Henry's death, lists the widowed Abigail as 31 and a native of Virginia, but her age actually would have been 35. The children were all listed as Ohio natives: Anna, 17; Emily, 15; William H., 13; Isaac, 11; Robert, 9; Elizabeth, 7; Levi, 5; David, 4.

†††††"The 1860 Census lists Abigail, 45, with all eight children still at home: Anna, 25; Emily, 24; William, 23; Isaac, 21; Robert, 18; Elizabeth, 17; Levi, 15; David, 13. (However, Emily's entry was an error, as she had been married for six years.) All five sons served in the Civil War which began the year following this census.

†††††"In ten years Abigail went from having seven children at home to having none. The 1870 census lists Abigail, 56, and only a grandson, Edwin Louis Allen, 10, one of daughter Ann's two illegitimate children.

†††††"The three graves on Henry and Abigail's farm are those of:
†††††* Henry Allen (1808-1849)
†††††* James W. Allen (1864-1871), son of William and Hannah Purtee Allen and grandson of Henry and Abigail, who died of diptheria at age 7
†††††* Melissa Allen (1869-1871), daughter of Isaac and Julia Irwin Allen and granddaughter of Henry and Abigail, who died at 2 1/2"

On page 1 of the 1840 census for Jefferson Township in Jackson County, Ohio, Henry is listed as the head of the household. In this house are 1 male between 20 and 30, 2 males under 5, 1 female between 20 and 30, and 2 females between 5 and 10. They are living next to Henry's brothers William and Robert.

    The children of HENRY ALLEN and ABIGAIL MASSIE are:

    1. ANNA ALLEN, b. 1834, Ohio, m. GEORGE DOWNING.
    2. EMILY ALLEN, b. 1835, Ohio.
    3. WILLIAM H. ALLEN, b. 1836, Ohio, m. HANNAH PURTEE.
    4. ISAAC ALLEN, b. 1838, Ohio, m. JULIA IRWIN.

     "Dear Wiife I seat myself this beautiful Sabath evening to drop you a few lines to inform you that I am well and truly hope that these few lines may find you in good health. I wrote to you the same day I landed here for you are my cheafest love and subject to meditation ever but I have not got an answer yet but I hope I shall soon for I know you have not forgotten me nor will I ever forget you till I forget the world. We are as I wrote before up in Dixie and are every day bringing in prisoners our pickets extend 15 miles in the di"RECT"ion of the enemy and last night the pickets of the Second Virginia Calvery fired on the rebel pickets and drove them some distance. We are looking for a fight here but it may not be that we will stay here long for I am told that we belong to Gen Wallaces division and if we do we may be ordered down the river if we are needed but we cannot tell one day what we will do the next. Well Mime I am well satisfied all but one thing and that is I cannot be at home if I could be at home as I would be at common labor I would like soildering first rate. But I believe I hate to be away from home as bad as any body lives but I pass off the time as well as I can. We had preaching in camp this afternoon we had a good serman I wish you could have been here all would be well with me if you had been here it was the first time I ever went to church on Sunday with a gun on my shoulder we marched down the hill rank and file and stood up while we sung and prayed and then layed down our guns and sat on the ground. There are about nine thousand troops here and are falling timber and building fortifying on the hill in sight of us the 34th Ohio Regt are working all day while we are at church and are planting their cannon over us we are protected on one side by the 2nd Virginia Calvery and on the other by the 34th Ohio the main force are on this Ohio side waiting for the attack to be made and then Colonel Lightburn will make as up about 23 big cannons on them I think we will be able to flat them out if they come. Well Jemima I want you to wright to me often and wright all the news and about that big Webster Company of militia. We call them here the ragged assed malitia. We have seen 2 thousand of them here this week at Gallipolis. Well I must come to a close for it is getting late. You must excuse me at this time I will wright to you soon again and you must do the same. So with the expectation of hearing from you soon I will say no more at this time. Believe me to remain your true husband until death.

     Late September/Early October 1862

     "Well Dear Mime I will write you a little sketch of the travels of the 91st Regt since Friday night. We was ordered to prepare 3 days rations and start up to Buffalow 25 miles from here and we started just before dark. Well we went on all night without stopping only to examine Bridges and just after sunrise we reached the Rebel pickets. We fired on them and they fled as fast as there horses could carry them all but one his horse threw him and we got man horse and all. They was ___ of Jenkens Cavelry well we followed them on double quick for two miles where we found there camp and they were all in confusion and fixing to run as usual but we fired on them so duently they hadent time to run so they passed a few hundred shots before they went. The fight continued about three minutes. I think Company C and F and D only being close enough to fire and the fogg was so thick we could not see them til after they took to there hills. They fled like sheep scattered by dogs up the lane toward the little town a mile and a half off. Well we followed them as close as we could leaving enough of our men to catch the horses they had left and attend to stragglers that was left. Beking on entering the little town we found the Rebels making across the river as fast as they could to there canons and they opened canons on us and we fired at them as long as we could see one of them to shoot at bout we could not fall them across the river so we came back to camp taking 17 head of fine beef cattle 18 horses and 3 men besides cloths and all we could carry and burned what we could not carry having no way to hall anything I have not time to tell you about into be we say the Elephant, the best we know about them we killed 9 and wounded several all the bad luck we had one of our boys got his gun broke into in hand and they say a ball hit the flag staff that is all I will write now. I will tell you more about it in the morning and all about it when I see you when we got into the little town the Colonel stormed out where is them canons tell us or we will burn you up and the women began to throw ___ out white flags and point in the di"RECT"ion the Rebels fled to a thick grove of timber on the opposite side of the river but the canon soon ceased and the horsemen fled so fast we fired after the horsethievs and started back to our camp not being able to over take them we are now at Point Pleasant again safe and sound but about wore out with a march of fifty miles without halt or eat or sleep but once for one hour that is what I call a scout. Well Mime I will tell you what I captured I got a sesh knapsack blanket shirt one pair of drawers a mans shawl and a womans shoe. I sold the shawl for one dollar on my way to camp I had more than I could carry it was worth 5 dollars that is all the money I have now I am wearing the shirt and drawers. Dear Mime I must come to a close if you take a notion to come up soon wright about when you think you will come in your next letter you could get Sam to come with you. I think you had better get some one to come if you can when you come. can tell you about how a Sesesh bullet sings there was several passed over company F but all two high. Bill Allen says it was the first time he ever dodged a canon ball. I good by D Jemima for the present. Wright soon to me

I had a chill last night just after went to bed and had a fever all night so I did not sleep but very little. A fell better this morning I think I will only have the chill every other day for I feel just like I did last fall when I had the ague.

Samuel White is getting better. Well the Regt is gone up the river but we donít know how far we have not heard from them since they left.

She was born January 27, 1852 in Johnson County, Kentucky, died July 20, 1949 in Van Lear, Johnson County, Kentucky, and is buried in Hager Hill Cemetery in Hager Hill, Johnson County, Kentucky.

Notes: Information on this family can be found on page 321 of "The Conley Clan of Eastern Kentucky," published and sold by The Magoffin County Historical Society.

Information on this family can also be found on page 130 of the book "Johnson County, Kentucky: A History of the County, and Genealogy of Its People Up to the Year 1927" by Mitchell Hall.

Mary Ann Estep was the sister of Barbara Ann Estep.

Eva Conley is listed as a daughter in this family in the 1910 census, but in both 1900 and 1910, Mary Estep Conley says that she has given birth to 13 children and 12 are still living. The Conley Clan of Eastern Kentucky lists 13 children in this family and Eva isn't one of them. There is a Samuel Lewis Conley listed and he isn't found in any census report, so it seems that he must have been the child who died before 1900. Hiram Conley died in 1897, so Eva definitely wasn't his child. There was an Eva Conley who was born in 1900 and married an Elbert Castle. She died in 1978, according to Johnson County Historical Society's website, and was buried in Richmond Cemetery in Paintsville (along with her husband and her son, Elbert Castle Jr.). It's more than likely that Eva was a granddaughter.

According to Kentucky birth records, Hiram Conly was born March 1, 1852 in Johnson County to John Conly and Peggy Blare. Under comments it says "not named."

According to Kentucky birth records, Mary an Estep was born January 27, 1852 in Johnson County to Samuel Estep and Alletine Bowen According to Kentucky marriage record transcripts, Hiram Conley married Mary Ann Estep on December 11, 1871 in Lawrence County.

Information found on the Johnson County Historical Society's website shows that Hiram F. Conley lived from March 1, 1862 [sic] to October 17, 1897, and was buried in Hager Hill Cemetery in Hager Hill, Johnson County, Kentucky, and that Mary A. Estep Conley lived from February 6, 1853 to July 20, 1949, and was buried in the same cemetery.

According to her death certificate, Mary Ann Estep Conley died July 20, 1949 in Van Lear, Johnson County, Kentucky, from bronchopneumonia, arteriosclerosis, and dry gangrene of feet. Also on this certificate, her birthplace is listed as Kentucky, her birth date as February 6, 1853, her marital status as widowed, her parents as Samuel Estep and Alma Bowen, the informant as Green County, and the burial place as Conley Family Cemetery in Hager Hill.

According to her obituary, Mary Ann Estep Conley (age 96), daughter of Sam and Alma Bowen Estep, was born February 6, 1853 in Johnson County, died July 20, 1949 in the home of her son, Green, in Van Lear, Johnson County, and was buried in the Hager Hill Cemetery in Hager Hill, Johnson County, Kentucky. She was the widow of Hiram F. Conley, who preceded her in death 52 years prior. She was survived by 5 sons, Hayden Conley (Hager Hill), John B.
