There were four William Allens in the Jackson County, area and the one in Elbert County, had a brother named Beverly who was said to have been the first Methodist Minister in Georgia and wound up to be a killer after shooting Robert Forsyth of Augusta in 1794. Forsyth was the first U.S.Marshall killed in U.S. in the line of duty. Beverly Allen escaped to KY where he lived as a Dr. William of Jackson (mine) had a so named Beverly also and there was another one named Beverly living in Hancock Co., Ga. and maybe one or two more that I have not connected as yet. There was also a lot of Robert Allens in the state. One was located in Franklin County, Georgia. The Allens had a lot of people in this state.
