HI Mary, I'm back with new questions.Do you have any information on the Columbus Allen b. 1844?The reason I'm asking is that on the 1880 census my gr-grandfather C. H. (Columbus H.) Allen gives his age as 37 making him born about 1843.On his tombstone it gives his date of birth as 1848.So now, I'm not sure of the date of birth!!I've asked a cousin that is also researching this line to check the date on the tombstone to make sure it reads 1848 and not 1843.Meanwhile, I'm looking at the Columbus Allens born about 1843.
I was sent to a site on Ancestry.com for Allens and on it there is a Cynthia Evalyn Allen who married Smith Robert Parker on 27 Apr. 1870, no county or state.
My Columbus Allen named Smith Parker as as co-executor in his will!!Columbus Allen also named a daughter Cynthia.Do you have any Cynthia or Evelyn Allens in your line, who may have married a Parker?
This may be the break that I need as I found a Robert Smith/Smith Robert Parker from Franklin, Heard County.He was born 18 July 1850.There are several families of Allen Heard Co. and Heard Co. west boundary is on the Alabama line, where my Columbus H. Allen ended up.
