    • It appears from the preponderance of evidence that John Allen's first wife, Caroline C., was the daughter of Alexander and Elizabeth (Blackburn) McGrew. The 1850 Sabine County, Texas census shows that she was born circa 1827 in Mississippi. Alexander and Elizabeth McGrew lived in Marion County, Mississippi at the time of 1820. 1830, and 1840 Federal census. They also had a daughter who has not been accounted for by other researchers that was born sometime between 1820-1825.

      Blanche Finley Toole, a Sabine County Genealogist, writes that Caroline McGrew and John Wooldridge Allen were married in Louisiana on 22 April 1845. She was given this information by Edna Mae Hackney, an Allen family researcher. Mrs. Hackney did not cite a source, and to date a marriage license has not been located.

      Blanche Toole indicated that  both Harriet (McGrew) Partin and Caroline (McGrew) Allen are mentioned in the Estate Settlement of Alexander McGrew who died in late 1849. The Sabine County Clerk notes that the records from this time period were burned in a Courthouse fire.

      The strongest written evidence located to date is a deed showing John W. Allen purchasing the former homestead of Alexander McGrew from the Estate of Elizabeth Blackburn McGrew. This is the land that was deeded to her by her husband on January 22, 1849. Blanche believes that the careful wording of the deed shows that they wanted to be very careful and take all precautions to ensure that no questions arose, since relatives were selling to relatives. According to the deed, the land  was sold at public auction "in strict conformity to the law, for the sum of four-hundred and one dollars, that being the highest and best bid therefore at sale and whearas afterwards, to wit, at the November term 1868 of said Court, report of said sale having been made in writing on oath and the court having inquired into the manner in which said sale was made and conducted and having found that the same was conducted fair and in accordance with the law, did order and decree that the undersigned administratix make the conveyance." Frances Steel, the Administratix of the Estate of Elizabeth McGrew was the daughter of Harriet McGrew and John Partin, and granddaughter of Elizabeth (Blackburn) McGrew. The deed was recorded on August 17, 1869 at the office of D. Pratt Clk. Ct. and on March 25, 1882 at the office of W.T. Arnold Co. Clk. Sabine Co, Texas.
