Bonnie, So far I have not been able to identify the E. Allen buried in the Bigbee cemetery in Telephone.I am aware of two Stanmore Allens.Stanmore H. Allen b. 1828 in TN, d. 1865.This is probably not the one.The other was my great grandfather, Stanmore J. Allen, b. 1849 Fannin Co, TX, died 1915 Telephone, TX. This Stanmore had 4 siblings, all males, Henry Jenkins Allen b. 1854, William Elbert Allen b. 1856, John Wisley Allen b. 1858 and Joseph A. Allen b. 1860. I will continue to look for clues.Can't find any Allens whose name begins with E whose birth/death dates match up.
On another note, and coincidentally, my research into the Phillips family of northeast Fannin county shows a connection to the Bigbee family.My mother was a Hassell and her mother was a Phillips.The information that I have shows W. T. Bigbee as a descendant of John Strothers Bigbee.Please e-mail me direct if you would like.
