It’s Family Time~The Allen McDaniel Page Family

It's Family Time
Sometimes the unanswered questions leaves a big gap in our family histories. Such is the case of Allen McDaniel Page. I feel certain that Allen sudden death in 1854 caught all his family and friends off guard.

Allen McDaniel Page was born 14 August 1829, the first born child of  Sion Page and his wife Nancy.  Nancy‘s surname is unknown; some have her listed as Nancy Dove, others says she was Nancy Almond.

Allen grew up like many young men of that era as a farmer. On 8 December 1853, Allen married a young lady by the name of Sarah Huneycutt, daughter of Marcus I. ‘Mark’ Huneycutt and his wife Charity Dry.

Less than a year later Mark McDaniel Huneycutt has passed away. Allen Page's Probate folder, Stanly County, shows that he died prior to 13 October 1854 the date that Sarah Page petitioned the court to set aside a years provision and appoint 3 freeholders to inventory the estate.

Before his passing, Allen witnessed the birth of his daughter, Tabitha Irene ‘Bitha’ Huneycutt on 21 June 1854.

No tombstone has been found for Allen or his wife Sarah ‘Sallie’ Huneycutt Page. Sarah is found in the 1900 with her daughter and son-in-law Calvin Almond. No other record beyond this has been found.

This short marriage and duration as a family leaves a lot of unanswered questions. If you have any information about Allen and Sarah I would love to hear from you. 


Allen McDaniel Page is my 2nd Great Grand Uncle.
