John - A good part of my Allens settled in southern Georgia, not that far from Putnam, Georgia in Macon County. I'm relative new in this research and am not sure if our lines are connected. The fartherest anyone in this Allen line has been able to trace the family is to David Allen (1796-1855) who married Elizabeth Camp (1795-?) in 1818 in Cleveland County, North Carolina. David's father was Larkin Allen, but that's where the trail ends. Are you able to connect with these folks?
I'm not sure whether we're kin on the Allen side or not, but, from checking some of your other posts, we're most surely connected on the Sudduth/Suddarth side. My great grandmother was Elizabeth Adeline Sudderth who married Hency Clay Thomas, my great grandfather. I haven't been able to sort out all of the different branches with different name spellings, but I understand that they originated from the same clan. Do you have any Sudderth's in your data? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks again. - Carroll Ray Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org
