Apparently, we are not too distant relatives.How are you related to Cecil?
Here's what my dad told me this weekend.The Allee who had the jewelry store is Tommy (retired but still living in Crockett, I think).Dad says Tommy has lots of Allee info., especially about A.Y. Allee.Dad also knew Cecil, Tommy's brother.
My dad's grandfather was Steve Allee, who was Tommy's father's half-brother.He was also born in Ash, like your grandfather.
Dad's father was Ross Lee Allee, Sr., one of twelve siblings.The others were Elizabeth, Kate, Worth, Kathleen, Emma, Angeline, Julia, Billy, Quinton, Mary, and Steve, Jr., most of whom are dead.Emma and Julia might still be alive.
John Oliver, whose mother was an Allee, lives in Marble Falls, too, and has gathered lots of info.I forget how I'm related to him.
