Hey Dwight; I saw your posting, mentioning Thomas Allen who is buried at the Tumbling Creek Cemetery in Polk Co., TN. My husband is related to this Thomas Allen. His family, and others, called him "Jeff"; his full name being Thomas Jefferson Allen. We have a photo that we took of "Jeff's" headstone while we were up there, in Fannin Co., Ga., visiting relatives. We would be very interested in knowing if you have done any Allen/Allan research, going further back than "Jeff"? If so, we would be happy to share what information we have about the Allen's in exchange. We have very little at this time, since we haven't been able to go back any furthur that "Jeff". By-the-way, my husband is Jeffrey "Jeff" Allison Allen, and his dad was Armer Jefferson Allen. Armer is buried at the Mt. Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery in Fannin Co., Ga. We're also interested in information about the O'Neal's that married into the Allen family, if you happen to have any information about them.
