Allen Pierce Page - 1st Lieutenant   
1C5R
Born on April 13, 1838 in Conecuh County, Alabama (probably at Fork Sepulga, where his grandfather, Jacob Page, had settled in 1820), to Kinchen Page and Cyrena/Serena Page (Wright). Allen was the 2nd child and the eldest son. At the time of the 1840 Census, the family had relocated to Butler County, Alabama but by the 1850 Census taken on October 1850, they were residents of Conecuh County. It is unclear when and why they moved between these two locales over this timeframe. Kinchen relocated the family to Texas sometime before 1860 Census, taken on August 20 of that year. Allen stayed behind in Alabama.
At the time of the 1860 Census and the outbreak of the War, Allen was employed as a clerk in his cousin James Wesley Page’s store in Butler County, Alabama. It appears he was residing with his cousin at the time of the census. He would make the move to Texas between June 20, 1860 and May 5, 1862, his date of enlistment.
He enlisted in Co. E, 11th Texas Infantry and mustered into service in Carthage, Panola County, Texas as a Private, alongside his two brothers and brother in law. He was promoted to 1LT possibly by election between February 1864 and April 1865. He served the entirety of his contact with this unit and was home in Panola County at the time of the surrender.
