Genealogical Records



This book details several families who settled briefly along Trammel Creek in the vicinity of Allen Springs/Halfway in the part of Warren County that later became part of Allen County. Most of these people migrated to Indiana, in the vicinity of Owensville, Gibson County; Cynthiana, Posey County; and Armstrong Township, Vanderburgh County. Related family members remained in Allen County and the surrounding area for several generations.


Since this book deals mainly with people who were born, and several who died, prior to the 1850 Census, there will no doubt be some factual errors due to a lack of available public records. It is hoped that any errors are minor and that it is made clear when information is based upon fact, when it is deduced from what facts are available and when a speculation is being made. While every attempt has been made to avoid errors by being as thorough as possible in this research, the results presented herein are simply the best that could be done in researching an era where available public records are sometimes very scant and where there is not always a clear answer to every question.
