Joshua B. & Mary "Polly" Campbell Allen

Joshua was a native of Nelson Co., VA; born there on Sep. 23, 1809.  Polly was probably born in Nelson, but could have been born in Amherst c1815.  They were married on May 12, 1832 in Nelson.  I have no death dates or burial sites for them.

They were parents of at least seven children, all of whom seem to have been born in Nelson, probably in the Montebello area.

Robert Hall was born Feb. 2, 1833, died Dec. 27, 1908.  He married Mary M. Fauber or Fauver on Dec. 12, 1855 in Nelson.  She was born Jul. 12, 1840 in Nelson and died Apr. 22, 1937 in Montebello.

The second child was William B., born c1836, died Aug., 1861.

George Givens was their third child and third son.  He was born Jan. 6, 1838 and died Apr. 5, 1906.  He married Jane Wood on Dec. 24, 1857.  She was born c1841 in Augusta Co.

Nancy F. was the first daughter.  She was born Jan. 6, 1840 in Montebello and died Apr. 30, 1915 in Tipp City, Miami Co., OH.  She was married to Jesse C. Coffey, a son of Garland G. and Nancy Coffey Coffey, on Dec. 21, 1853 in Nelson Co.  Jesse died Aug. 5, 1887 in Waverly, Pike Co., OK.  Nancy is buried at Maple Hill Cemetery in Tipp City; Jesse's burial place is not known to me.  This couple lived for a short time in Nelson before moving to Rockbridge Co., then to Augusta.  By 1880 they were back in Nelson but by 1900 they had moved to Augusta Co. and then to Ohio.  They were parents of 12 children, some of whom have been written about in this blog.  I expand on them later.

Mack was the next child, born c1843.  No further information.

Margaret Sarah was child number six.  She was born c1845 and married Martin H. Lotts on Feb. 6, 1862 in Nelson Co.  Martin was born in Nelson c1840.

The last child was Malinda, born Jun. 27, 1853.  I have no further information about her.
