I am seeking info on my g-g-g-grandfather's family.My g-g-grandfather was Robert Samuel Allen, born in Claiborne Parish, LA ca. 1860.I located his family on the 1870 LA Census in Lisbon, LA.
Robert Samuel's father is listed as "R.S. Allen" (also Robt. Samuel?)his age is hard to read.It seems to be 57 (b. @ 1813) born in TN.R.S.'s wife is listed as "M.E. Allen" age 43, also of TN.The two oldest children; W.M., male, 22; and O.P. female, 20 are also born in TN.So, the family appears to have moved to Louisiana around 1850-53.
There is also another family in the 1870 Census that may be related.S.T.(?) Allen age 60 of TN lived near Gordon, LA where R.S. lived in 1860.S.T. and his wife, S.E. have two children born in AR, and the rest born in LA (moved to LA @ 1858)
Can anyone help me fill in the blanks, or should I say, the initials?
