I find the name Culpepper in your query very interesting.Our Thomas McCollough b. 1804 in S.C. d. 1878 in Coffee Cty, AL married Nancy Allen b. GA in 1821.Thomas had a brother name William Culpepper McC. b. 1802 in S.C.Also one of Thomas's grandsons was name William Culpepper McC.Thomas and Nancy resided in Chambers Cty, AL from abt 1840 to 1857 prior to moving to Coffee Cty. We haven't established the parents of Nancy Allen to date.However, there was a William P. Allen who resided close to them in Chambers Cty.They also attended the same church while their.Just wondering if maybe your Allen is connected to this family.
