The Elk Run Episcopal Church was built near Midland, Virginia ca 1750. It served the community and the families which settled in the region. There is no doubt but what the Allens were members of this church, perhaps some of its founders.. Today, a great interest in this church and the site is under excavation by local archeologists. James Allen, a son of John Allen, was born ca 1750 in Elk Run and died in Morgan County, Georgia. It is his descendants which populated this part of Georgia for many years. His Last Will and Testament in Morgan county named his wife, Lucy and David Boring as executors.
"I lend to my loving wife, Lucy Allen, all tl1e estate I am now in possession of during her widowhood and should she marry, then to come in and take a child's part, and should the negroes which I have sent for in the hands of Nathaniel Allen be recovered to be In the same situation with my other property now in my possession."
