John Thurman Allen was my great grandfather. His daughter, was Mary Pauline(Lena) Allen and was the sister of your grandfather, George Binum Allen. Mary Pauline(Lena) married my Grandfather John P Turner. My father, Odbert Turner was one of the sons of John P Turner and Mary P Allen. My father, Odbert Turner, and your mother, Mildred May Allen,were 1st cousins. If I am correct, you and I are 2nd coisins.
There are a couple of errors on your info on John Thurman Allen. He was born on Dec 4 1842 and died on Nov 16 1919. He was married one time only and that was to Susan J Wilmot on Jun 13 1872. I have a copy of DECLARTION OF WIDOWS PENSION that Susan J Allen filed on Dec 8 1919 for John Thurman Allens Cival War Pension following his death. Susan J allen died on May 8 1931.
One of John T and Susan J Allens sons was named John T Allen, born on Feb 26 1883 but I do not know who he married.
