Please remember, not all is proven, and the connection between the PA Allen's and my James Allen b. 1722 that left with his brothers to Rhode Island, NY, eventually to VA and then TN, has not been documented as yet, it is believed by a few that this is how it goes, and I am putting this info down, until it can be proven as fact, incase it is, but I will remove this info if it becomes proven this is not so. Would very much appreciate any info that is documented that can prove or disprove this family tie.

THE ROBERT ALLEN FAMILY From Historic Greene County, Tennessee and Its People: 1783-1992

ROBERT ALLEN, Patriot Veteran of the American Revolution, was a widower with five children. He was granted a large acreage along the Nolachucky River in Greene County where he made his home. The property came to be known as Allen's Landing. [It got Flooded in 1926 Flooded Dogtrot] The name of his first wife is unknown. His children by his first wife were: ROBERT; JAMES, who married NANCY JONES, daughter of GEORGE JONES; REUBEN, JOHN [JONES], who married MARY JONES, sister of NANCY; POLLY, who married SAMUEL LEMING; FRANCES, who married HENRY A. FARNSWORTH. James went to Missouri, where he became a tavern keeper, Reuben, a veteran of the War of 1812, went to Cocke County, Tennessee, where he died in 1825. The other children remained in Greene County. In 1791, ROBERT ALLEN, SR., remarried in Greene County. His second wife was MARTHA KERR [CARR]. There were three children: DANIEL, born 1791, married POLLY BAKER, daughter of ISAAC BAKER, in 1813: **SAMUEL, born 1796, married FRINTON [TRENTON] ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH; MARGARET ANN married WILLIAM M. CRAWFORD IN 1817. ROBERT ALLEN'S WILL MENTIONS A SON JOHN, of whom nothing further is known.

ROBERT ALLEN SR. willed his 450 acre farm to his wife and named his son Daniel as manager. Daniel was able to expand the farm to 1300 acres. Daniel and Polly had twelve children: Robert, Louisa, Elizabeth, Martha, Isaac, James, Nancy, Samuel, John, Daniel, Margaret and Mary. Daniel Allen died in 1857. In addition to the plantation, he had a first-rate roller grain mill and an Orebank on Cove Creek. In addition, he held numerous notes for money loaned. His slaves remained with the family. They were: Emily, Sandy, Sarah, Bill, Jack, Andrew, Sarah, Nance, Julia, Israel, Jack, Jerry, Bill and Charles. Daniel Allen's three sons Robert, James, and Isaac all died in the 1880s financially insolvent, due to the devaluation of Confederate money. At the end of the war, there were three kinds of money in circulation: Hard Cash [silver and gold] was valued 42 cents on the dollar. Greenbacks [United States Government Certificates] were valued 100 cents on the dollar, and Confederate notes which were valued 600 cents on the dollar. Later, it was worthless. The Allens, with other Confederates, were insolvent. Because they were harassed, sought a better life and political climate, and wished to improve their condition, the Allens left Greene County. Most went to Whitfield County, Georgia, where they were influential in the rebuilding of that section. Daniel Earnest Allen, a Civil War veteran, went to Georgia. One of his sons, Ivan, became Mayor of Atlanta for one term. Ivan's son Ivan Allen Jr., was elected to the same office for two terms. The Allens were one of Greene County's most respected and influential families whose lives, like many of their neighbors, were disrupted by the War. [submitted by Goldene Burgner, Greeneville, TN]

Our subject, the eldest of eight children, was reared on the farm, and educated at Tusculum College, which the war caused him to abandon for the Confederate Army, Company L, Fourth Tennessee Cavalry. He was at Chickamauga and Murfreesboro, and surrendered with Gen. J. E. Johnston. After a trip West he settled on his present farm in Greene County. In 1878 he married Martha Mc. Alexander.

Former Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. dead at age 92

Mayor helped city bridge racial divide


Atlanta Journal-Constitution Staff Writers

Allen Ivan Jr., mayor of Atlanta during the turbulent 1960s, has died at age 92. Allen passed away just after 1 p.m. today. The former mayor is credited for keeping Atlanta calm during the 1960s because of his willingness to welcome integration in public and business arenas. Allen served as mayor from 1962-1970.

He was instrumental in bring professional sports to Atlanta by leading the efforts to build the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which became the home for the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta Braves.

Allen, who was in failing health over the past couple of years, is survived by his wife, Louise Richardson Allen, and two sons: Hugh Inman Allen and Beaumont Allen. His eldest son, Ivan Allen III, died in 1992.

Allen led the city through economic prosperity and civil rights civility while bringing major league sports to the South for the first time.

His name, buoyant personality, progressive political style and aristocratic demeanor were synonymous with the city's modern image, formed largely during his term from 1962 until 1970. It was a period when Atlanta became the quintessential thriving Sun Belt metropolis, displaying at least the illusion of racial equality.

Allen's death comes a week after the sudden death of former Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson and the death of one-time political opponent Lester Maddox, the segregationist whom Allen defeated in the 1961 mayoral race.

During Allen's two terms, the city's population 31.5 percent. The city saw 50 major buildings erected downtown, including Peachtree Center. Retail sales increased 97 percent, per capita income 80 percent. Corporations poured millions of dollars into a "Forward Atlanta" ad campaign in major media around the nation to promote the city's image. Allen's years at City Hall also saw tremendous growth in transportation. Second and third parallel runways were added at Hartsfield International Airport, and planning began for the massive new terminal that opened in 1980. The Downtown Connector cut through the city; I-285 began to ring it. And Atlanta started planning for the MARTA rail system. Allen also made Atlanta a big-league city in the sports arena. Until he and banker Mills B. Lane Jr. stepped in, Atlanta was a minor league stop among cities like Birmingham and Mobile. Then Allen built Atlanta Stadium.

"We built a stadium on ground we didn't own with money we didn't have for a team we hadn't signed," Allen said. He signed the Milwaukee Braves to a 25-year contract, and they began playing as the Atlanta Braves in 1966.

In June of 1966, the National Football league beckoned, and the Atlanta Falcons were born.

No question who was boss. Mayor helped city bridge racial divide Unlike many of his raucous counterparts in Southern politics, Allen was known as a cultured man of dignity and grace, courteous to a fault. Above all, he was supremely confident in the strength of his convictions and his extraordinary ability to lead.

"If the city administrative machinery was too slow in solving a problem, he would do it himself," former aide Dan Sweat once said. "On more than one occasion I witnessed his whipping out his checkbook and writing a personal check for a public works project when there was no money budgeted for it." George Berry, another former aide, said Allen also knew how to delegate. "He knew how to sound broad themes and to use his office in a strategic way to get the people of the city to address a problem or an issue that had to be solved. "He had more of all the diverse qualities that are required to be a great leader. And he had charisma," Berry said. "He was one of the most distinguished-looking men I ever knew. When he entered a room or stood before a crowd, there was no question who was in charge." Rare courage on race issue Allen was the pacesetter among white Southern politicians on the race issue. He was the only Southern elected official to testify in favor of the public accommodations section of what became the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

President John F. Kennedy sent New York lawyer and former Atlantan Morris B. Abram Sr. to ask Allen to testify before Congress on the legislation, and the mayor agreed. He told the Senate Commerce Committee on July 25, 1963: "Failure by Congress to take definite actions at this time is by inference an endorsement of the right of private business to practice racial discrimination and, in my opinion, would start the same round of squabbles and demonstrations we have had in the past." Sen. Philip Hart of Michigan asked Allen if Atlanta was acting under "Communist influence." "Senator," the mayor replied, "there's not any more Communists in Atlanta than we've got men on the moon." Sen. John Pastore of Rhode Island told Allen: "When President Kennedy wrote 'Profiles in Courage,' he was writing about men like you." The New York Times editorialized after Allen's testimony: "On rare occasions the oratorical fog on Capitol Hill is pierced by a voice resonant with courage and dignity." There was angry reaction back home, however. In November, Atlanta's Board of Aldermen voted 9-3 against permitting Allen to speak to them about a public accommodations resolution. "He was the only Southern mayor to testify, which said a lot for him right there," said Dana F. White, a Atlanta historian at Emory University. "I am sure [the White House] was pressuring other people to do it. He had the courage."

On the day he took office, Jan. 2, 1962 -- leading a city 40 percent black but still almost totally segregated -- Allen ordered "white" and "colored" signs removed from City Hall, desegregated the City Hall cafeteria, and gave the 48 black officers in a force of 900 the authority to arrest whites. He hired the first black firefighters and openly supported the civil rights efforts of fellow Atlantan the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. When King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in October 1964, Allen and 1,500 other Atlantans honored him at a biracial dinner the following January at the old Dinkler Hotel in Atlanta. After King was mortally wounded in Memphis on April 4, 1968, Allen and his wife, Louise, drove in their personal car to the King residence in Atlanta. They arranged to drive King's widow, Coretta, to the airport, where she was to fly to Memphis to be at her husband's side. She canceled the trip after being told at the airport that her husband had died.

Allen blundered on the race issue, however, in his first year as mayor. He broke a rule that been given him by former longtime Mayor William B. Hartsfield, who preceded Allen in office: "Never do anything wrong they can take a picture of." A developer sold his house on Peyton Road in southwest Atlanta to a black doctor. White residents south of the road feared "blockbusting" would lead to an influx of black neighbors. Allen decided to erect a barrier along the road to keep African-Americans out of the white area, a decision he later regretted as the low point of his public service. The barrier remained for two months, to be photographed often by newspapers and wire services. Finally a court ruled the barrier illegal, though Allen, anticipating the ruling, had had it taken down. Although Allen's era spurred transportation growth by luring federal dollars for expressways, that process also adversely affected race relations. The 1956 Interstate Highway Act provided the funds to crisscross Atlanta with I-75, I-85 and I-20 and encircle it with I-285. But the plan also hastened white flight to the suburbs. Tensions boiled over into riots twice during the Allen years. The first came in 1966 in Summerhill, adjoining Atlanta Stadium, when Allen was shaken off a car and rocks and bottles flew around his head. In 1967 in Dixie Hills, bricks and firebombs were thrown during a disturbance. "His main legacy is as a civil rights mayor," Emory's White said of Allen. White said former Hartsfield, Allen's predecessor, began to create an Atlanta that was more of an open society. Allen continued the legacy. "For his time, he was an outstanding individual," White said of Allen. White said a few years ago he was at a book-signing party where he was talking to Allen and his wife, Louise, when Coretta Scott King walked up. "The three just stood there and talked," White remembered. "I got the sense that this had developed into a strong relationship over the years. He always had that ability to relate to people. He has always been the consummate gentleman." Life of duty, leadership

Allen was born March 15, 1911, in Atlanta, the only son of Ivan Allen Sr. and Irene Beaumont Allen. His father helped form Ivan Allen-Marshall Co., later Ivan Allen Co. Ivan Jr. grew up in a house on Peachtree Street and attended Tenth Street and Spring Street elementary schools, O'Keefe Junior High and Boys' High. At Georgia Tech he was president of his fraternity, his class and Student Council and was cadet colonel of ROTC. He made all A's in 1929 on the way to compiling one of his class's top five scholastic averages, and he was elected to five honorary societies. He led a student protest march on the state Capitol after Gov. Eugene Talmadge announced he planned to abolish Tech's School of Commerce. The march did not achieve its goal, and in 1933 he became one of the last Tech graduates in commerce. Allen went to work for his father as a clerk. In 1936 he married Louise Richardson of a wealthy local family. He spent all of World War II as an officer in the Quartermaster Corps -- a safe stateside billet for which he later felt obliged to apologize. Gov. Ellis Arnall, who had been a student leader at the University of Georgia while Allen was the same at Tech, got Allen an early release from military service in 1945. After that, Allen was Arnall's executive secretary for six months. Allen left Arnall's staff in March 1946 to become president of Ivan Allen-Marshall Co. He was honorary chief of staff for acting Gov. M.E. Thompson from January to March 1947. Allen sent up trial balloons on entering the race for governor in 1953 and 1957. Neither bid came about. By 1961 Allen was president of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. As president, Allen outlined a six-point program for progress in Atlanta: endorsement of the 1960 Sibley Commission recommendations for local option on school integration, increased expressway construction, urban renewal, an auditorium-coliseum and stadium, rapid transit, and the Forward Atlanta program to boost the city and attract tourism. In a historic series of events that presaged his election as mayor, Allen negotiated with the city's merchants and black leaders to desegregate downtown lunch counters in 1961. King and 75 students were arrested after marching on Rich's department store and its segregated basement restaurant, where they were turned back. Allen and black leaders met almost daily for five weeks. In March 1961, an agreement was reached providing that 30 days after the court-ordered desegregation of Atlanta schools that fall, blacks would be guaranteed full desegregation of downtown lunch counters. In turn, blacks would cease picketing and boycotting the stores. After Hartsfield announced his retirement -- he had been mayor for a quarter-century, from 1936 to 1940 and from 1943 to 1962 -- Allen resigned as chamber president and said he would run for mayor. In a Democratic runoff, Allen defeated Maddox, who later would become Georgia's governor. Allen was Atlanta's mayor on a tragic day for the city -- June 3, 1962. An Air France Boeing 707 crashed on takeoff from Orly Field outside Paris, killing 101 Atlantans returning from an art appreciation tour. The mayor went to France to help bring the bodies home. As he walked through the wreckage he noticed some of the pastel tulle dresses that Nancy Frederick Pegram always wore; she had been Allen's first date. He went to five morgues to identify bodies, but they were burned so badly that identification was impossible. There was a memorial service at the American Cathedral. After that he went to his hotel and made 30 trans-Atlantic calls to grieving Atlanta families. Allen won a second term in 1965 when he defeated former legislator M.M. "Muggsy" Smith in a landslide.

Robert Davis Farnsworth's Father was: HENRY FARNSWORTH b. 1740 Vir d. 24 Apr 1816 Greene Co, TN married Unknown [some have down Mary Jane McKeehan, widow of Samuel McKeehan who died 1785 Franklin [later, Greene Co, TN]but nothing is proven yet: from messages:

Larry Dyer & Steven M Hall, nothing has been proven about Mary marrying Henry Farnsworth, message 1080 says: "...Court Records in which a John Brown gets support money from Greene Co, to care for a Margaret McKeehan, pauper, in 1821 and 1822. He believes this John Brown who married Samuel and Margaret McKeehan's daughter Mary, so it would make sense that John and Mary would take care of her mother in her old age."

Also in message 864: Steven Hall believes the family tradition that the father or grandfather of Henry Farnsworth Sr. was in the Battle of Bunker Hill. He has no proof yet, but he thinks Lt. David Farnsworth and Hannah Hastings of Charlestown NH and formerly of Lunenburg, Mass. are good possibilities. The whole family was in that Battle. He has checked carefully the Farnsworth in that battle and none fit to be Henry's parents, but Lt. David Farnsworth. Again he express's the fact that he has no proof yet, but there is a 10 year gap between their children, where Henry and John who died in the Rev. War. bef 1778 could certainly fit. Of course all this depends on if the family story of the family being the the Battle of Bunker Hill is true or not..

When you get a chance check out under Farnsworth..

J. R. Pyeatt. The biographical department of this work would be incomplete without mentioning the Pyeatts, who were among the pioneer settlers of Arkansas, and were first represented in this State by James and Kate [Finley] Pyeatt, natives of North Carolina, who, in 1812, removed from Kentucky about thirteen miles above Little Rock. Here they spent the remainder of their days. J.R. Pyeatt was in Kentucky in 1805, and came to Arkansas with his parents, and was here reared to manhood. In about 1827, he came to Washington County, and erected the first frame house ever built in the county, which is in good preservation, and in which he still resides. Having a natural taste for mechanics, he opened a wagon and blacksmith shop shortly after his arrival here, and followed that occupation for a number of years. He and his brother purchased some raw land, which they improved, but in 1861 Mr. Pyeatt engaged in the milling business, in partnership with his son-in-law, William S. Moore, and has since given that business the most of his attention. In 1831 he was married to Miss Elizabeth Buchanan, who was born and reared in West Tennessee. Her death occurred in 1868. William S. Moore, miller and farmer, was born in Greene County, Tennessee, February 20, 1835, the son of Capt. Anthony, and grandson of David Moore, the latter being a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Anthony Moore was a farmer by occupation, and died in Greene County, Tennessee, in the spring of 1880. His wife whose maiden name was Nancy Helt, was also born in Tennessee. William S. Moore spent his youthful days on a farm in Tennessee, and made his home with his father until twenty-one years of age. He then learned the wagon-maker's trade and in the fall of 1858 came to Arkansas, locating in Cane Hill, where he worked at this trade until the summer of 1862, when he joined the Thirty-Fourth Arkansas Infantry, Confederate States Army, and served until the close of the war. He participated in the Battle of praire Grove, and was paroled int he summer of 1865. He then returned home, and formed a partnership with Mr. Pyeatt in the milling business, and erected the Cane Hill Mills, which was in running order by the spring of 1866. The mill has been remodeled and improved since it was erected, and is now one of the finest mills in Washington County. It has a combined roller and buhr process, and has a capacity of forty barrels per day. They also manufacture some lumber, and in 1869 added a carding machine, which has proved very profitable. In 1861 Mr. Moore married Miss Kate Pyeatt, a daughter of his partner, Mr. Pyeatt, and their union was blessed in the birth of four children; Henry [who is a physician of the county], Charles R., Bettie and lucy. Mrs. Moore married died in 1877, and he afterward married his present wife, Mrs. Josephine moore, a daughter of James Moore. She was born in East Tennessee, and was reared in Tennessee and Missouri. They are members of the Cumberland Prsbyterian Church, and are worthy citizens of county, Mr. Moore has a good farm, which he manages in connection with his mill, and a fine orchard of forty-five acres.

Here I would like to put in some Babb info, because Charlie Allen & Robert F Allen married Babb Sisters:


The first immigrant ancestor is thought to have been Phillip Babb born England 1619: died New Hampshire 31 Mar 1671. He settled on Hog Island, Isle of Shoals, as early as the 24th of November 1652. He signed the Oath of Allegience at Kittery, Maine on this date. [Hog Island is now known as Appledore island.] On the 18th of March, 1653, twnety of the inhabitants of the Isle of Shoals petitioned for a court on the isles in order that their legal problems might be handled more quickly. The request was granted and the five men commissioned by the court in Boston to govern the Isle of Shoals were: Major Byran Pendleton, Nicholas Sharpleigh, PHILLIP BABB, Hercules Hunkins, and Richard Seely. PHILLIP BABB was appointed Fishing Master and remained as a magistrate and the Fishing Master until his death. There are several papers on record which bare Phillip's signature and all of them show that he spelled his name with two L's. He was probably the son of Thomas Babb

Phillip Babb born 1619 England d. 1671 Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire, m. Mary Baylie before 1662. She was born in England abt 1640 and died at the Isle of Shoals about 1674.                                                                         Children are:

    1. William Babb b. Abt 1662 d. bef Oct 27, 1773 [1691] Chester Co, Pa m. Deborah

    2. Thomas Babb b. abt 1664 Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire died bef. Sept 1751 [17 Aug 1748] New Castle County, Delaware m. [1] Bathsheba Hussey in Hampton, New Hampshire, daughter of John Hussey & Rebecca Perkins [2] Elizabeth Conway [Conaway] 25 Mar 1720

    3. Philip Babb b. abt 1666 d. 1737 m. Lydia Bragdon abt 1691

    4. Sampson Babb b. abt 1668 d. 1737 married Grace Taprill

    5. Peter Babb b. 29 Sept 1671 d. 1713 married Sarah Cate

Thomas Babb obtained a lang grant to 600 acres of land in Frederick County, Virginia, on 12 Nov 1735. Since there was a requirement that three acres out of every fifty be under cultivation within the next three years, he sent his sons Thomas and Phillip to occupy the land and they became prominent men in the Quaker community around Wincehster, Virginia. At his death, Thomas willed the home place in Delaware to his son Peter. His sons Thomas and Phillip were left the land they were caring for in Virginia.

Philip died 19 Jan 1813 and is buried in the Babb Cemetery in Greeneville, Tennessee. As he did not name his children in his will, there has been some confusion in the research. There are records in the Hopewell Monthly Meeting which give births for children Sarah, Jospeh & Thomas. There is one Seth gave his birth date in his pension records; in addition he was disowned by the Quakers in 100's along with his mother Mary and Sister Phoebe for joining the Methodists. Then in 1784 the Quaker records show a request of Phllip Babb's children Philip, Stephen, Mary, Elizabeth and Tamar for a certificate to New Garden, NC MM. The next month the Friends of New Garden stated they were not willing to accept the above children. "Source" Babb Families of America by Jean A. Sargent."

In 1785 Philip purchased land in Green Co, NC In 1787 Philip sent a recommendation from Frederick Co, Virginia Stating:

"Frederick County, Virginia. To all Whome it May consarn. We whose name are under written do Certify that Philip Babb and his family, has lived in the County for a Number of years and hath behaved them Selves as Peaceable People withtheir Nibors and honest in their dealing with all men far as we know or believe until they moved the Selves to North Carolina to witness where of we hereunto set our Names this 14 Day of july 1787. Signed by: "18 neighbors including brother Peter Babb." Meanwhile in 1790, 7th month 5th day, the Hopewell MM records VA state: "This meeting is informed that Philip Babb's children--Philip, Stephen, Mary, Elizabeth and Tamar removed with their parents within the verge of Westfield MM in North Carolina and had no certificate and several of them since gone out in marriage. Richard Ridgeway and James Steer are appointed to That Meeting requesting their assistance in treating with those who have misconducted, also some information concerning the others and report when ready."

Notes: Goodspeed's History of Greene County, Tennessee--1887

James M. Hunter, a farmer and stock dealer in the Seventh District, was born 1834 in Greene County, where he has since resided, and where he permanently located, having traveled quite extensively over the United States. He began life for himself, a poor man, and what he is now worth is the fruit of his own industry and good management. He owns a fine farm, where he now resides, of 317 1/2 acres, another of 231, and another of seventy-five acres. He has given his attention principally to stock dealing, at which he has been very successful. He was married in 1868 [1869] to R. C. Allen [Carrie R. Allen], a daughter of Samuel Allen, a native of Greene County. Three children blessed this union: William [deceased], Rebecca [deceased], and Charles Washington. Mrs. Hunter was killed February 14, 1884, by parties evidently desiring to kill and rob Mr. Hunter. Mr. Hunter was married September 15, 1885, to Miss N. S. Hawkins, a daughter of Dr. Joseph Hawkins, a native of Green County, a very successful medical practioner, and who was very popular. Mrs. Hunter was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and Mr. Hunter is a Democrat in politics, and cast his first presidential ticket for James Buchanan. He is a Master Mason, and a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge. He is the fifth of eight children--two sons an six daughters--of John and Lattie [Self] Hunter, natives of Greene County. He was a soldier in the War of 1812, and was a very successful farmer and stock dealer. Mr. Hunter was a son of Samuel Hunter, a native of Ireland, immigrated to America settling first in Washington County, Va., and afterward moved to Greene County, Tenn., being one of the earliest settlers of the last named county. He was a farmer by occupation. He had eight children--three daughters and five sons; Thomas, John, and Samuel, lived anddied in Tennessee, William and James moved to Missouri, where they died unmarried. Thomas Hunter's children moved to Missouri, excepting Frederick, who moved to Indiana.
