I can't see for looking....yes, it is the same George and Rebecca. I'm fading fast....
This is how the Lemuel Allen Family article reads (part of it anyway)......"Lemuel and Barbary's son George is listed in the Towns County census of 1860 with wife Rebecca and children.George's oldest child listed, was Thomas (b. 1845). Again I find in the Towns County 1870 census page 189, Thomas listed with wife Amy and two children: William Sylvester (b.1867) and Felix A. (b.1870)."
This is what led me to believe that Lemuel's father, John might have been Robert Allen's brother.John was only a few years older and when Robert died, then Jarrett died, George might have been the only relative old enough and close enough to take Thompson in.
It makes sense, even when I'm brain dead.Where are you from by the way?
