Seeking any information on I. A. Allen, Might be J. A. Allen (if you've ever read any old census reports, you know why the confusion). Married Annie May Howard abt 1860. Known Children: Susan Frances (my g-grandmother), b.1862, John, b.1864, James A. b.1866 (one reason I think it might be J. A.), Benjamin J. b.1869, Annie b.1874 and Holly D. b.1877. Known to have lived in Sand Mountain area of AL but census says IA (JA) was born in TN. Susan married John Nelson Hawkins about 1880. I have extensive files on their Hawkins descendants.
