judy I saw another post of yours somewhere. In it you mention all my family: Beuna Vista, Theadocia, Movina Allen, etc. You also listed Nancy Allen, Mary Jane Allen and Jessie Allen. Who are those three? Where did you locate their names? I found the others in 1880 Clarke, Ms. & 1900 Choctaw, Al. census. Are these three in there too. Are you sure Burwell is their brother? How do you know that? Malinda Whittle Allen did have 11 kids tho. What happened to your Lovetts? Wonder why the Allens & Lovetts did not remain close? Did your Lovetts stay in Ms./Al. area?These Allen's are such a mystery. Any new info your way? Thanks!!
