< I know that. It's why I mentioned that I don't have the exact wording. The use of the initial "M" could very easily mean that she had a middle name. A good number of people from that time period had middle names - they just didn't usually make it into legal documents. But he definitely would not have named her as Elizabeth M. Allen if she were not still single, unless she had married another Allen. Julius had 5 known brothers, but if he had sisters they are unknown.
