This is my father DAVID SOLOMON ALLEN'S family. His father was GEORGE WASHINGTON ALLEN b.1/2/1885. George's mother was SUSAN A.ALLEN b. 12/5/1865 & his father was unknown. She did marry much later in life to W. I. COOLEY. See my other post for birt/death & cemetery. In 1901 SUSAN A. ALLEN owned a 160 acre farm near Yantley, Al. unfortunately my Gma MARGARET WILSON (KELLY) ALLEN had to sell it in the 70's I think.

SUSAN A. ALLEN (GRANNY SUSIE) had 3 sisters daddy knew:
Mittahaha? "Mitt" Theodocia"doci" Beaunna Vista "Beunnie"-your misprint REUNNA
The sisters never married and knew who G.W.Allen's father was, but took the secret to the grave. Daddy is so excited to find out his G-grandparents names were- MALINDA WHITTLE & RICHARD ALLEN! Do you know anything further? I see some sporadic info on RICHARD'S brother JOHN. Perhaps this is a clue as to where this ALLEN line came from. GEORGE WASHINGTON ALLEN named one of his son's after himself -as Jr. however, he put his middle name as TRYON. No one, my father or his brothers knowS where that name came from. We think it may have been G.W.Allen's fathers last name??? Please write back
