Paul, is your Beverly Allen the one on the 1830 Jackson Co. GA census?Has 3 males under 5, one male 5-10 and one male 30-40, 3 females 5-10 and one female 30-40?
If so, do you know who his siblings were?I have Hiram Allen in the same county, same time, same age range. Hiram was born in South Carolina, and his occupation was as a blacksmith.He was married twice, first time to a Carna/Carsia Eilands, the second time to Cynthia Waford/Wafford/Wofford Cooley. (I'm leaning toward "Wofford" as there are Woffords all around in that area of GA during the time period)
Other Allens on this 1830 census in Jackson Co. GA are Robert, Isham, Titus G. F., Alexander,Elizabeth.Then there is a Frances Allen free colored female, with several children.Although Alexander and Elizabeth are listed in the Jackson Co. GA. census index, they are actually in Jasper County.
I think that the Titus G. F., Isham, and Robert are all connected to Hiram in some way.Hiram named sons, Titus G., and one Isom/Isham.Isom named a son Robert.
I think every Allen family had a William, Hiram's being no exception.Hiram had a total of nine children with his first wife, 6 boys, 3 girls, only have name of one son, Isom, and one daughter, Elizbeth.
With his second wife, he had 8 more children 5 boys, 3 girls. Their names, Columbus, Cynthia, Vesta (Nesta on the census), David, Amanda, (David and Amanda were twins),Joshua, Titus G., and William Allen
There should be lots of descendants from this Hiram Allen coming out of Jackson Co. GA. The family was in Jackson County at least through 1853.Not sure when Hiram moved to Talladega Co., Alabama. where he is found on the 1870 and 1880 Talladega Co. Census.
Believe that some moved to Texas also Mississippi.
