      From Donald Lee Allen's "History of the Allen Family" pg. 230-235:

      Daniel left Van Buren, Crawford Co., Ar and came to Mexia, Limestone Co ., Tx in the 1850's. The 1860 Limestone Co., Tx Census listed Daniel livi ng with the Reeves family and working as a farm laborer. Nearby, was Jam es Pelton family with a fourteen year old daughter named Sarah Ann. Dani el married Sarah Ann Pelton in 1861.

      Daniel and Sarah were to move west in search of new land. Leaving Mexi a, they got as far as Parker Co., near where Whit is now located. There t hey met Indians who were raiding a nearby wagon train. Daniel and his par ty hid in the timber on a creek prepared for battle. Fortunately, the Ind ians by-passed them. They were so frightened by the experience that th ey turned and settled 5 miles north of Mansfield, Tarrant Co. where the ir children were born later.

      Daniel died at age 35, leaving Sarah Ann to raise the family: their ag es were 11, 9, 7, 5, 3 and 1 year. Daniel is buried at Sublet Cemetery be hind Rehoboth Baptist Church, 7300 Cooper Rd. at Harris Street, 5 miles no rth of Mansfield, Tx in Tarrant Co. Location: from the gate located on t he east side of the cemetery, walk to the cedar tree, turn left, the 5th g rave.
