I am very interested in your query concerning John Allen. He is one I have absolutely nothing on except that a John Allen was a son of Joseph Allen, Sr., who died in Elbert Co., GA. bef. 09 May, 1833. I am assuming John born in the early 1800's. If you have a marriage date for this John, that could possibly help us in determing if he belongs to Joseph. I do not know how Ephriam Allen fits into my Allens, but more than likely does. I have seen his name many times while doing research in Elbert Co., but I do not know anything about him or his children. I do know he was enumerated in 1820 Elbert Co. Do you know any other surnames connected with John Allen besides McMullan?
