hi, I'm suspecting that my ancestor Levi Allen was the same Levi Allen who was married to Sarah Caroline Nix.
My Levi Allen was on the 1900 Blount Co, Tn census married to Mary Kimbrel/Kimbrell/Kimbril/Kimbell etc. With 5 children listed, Mary listed as being the mother to 1 less child than was on the census (mother of 9, 4 living). This leads me to believe that Levi's son James Ben Allen (aka JB, or Ben) was not the son of Mary.
1910 Oklahoma census, Mary still lists 1 less child again, (mother of 10, 5 living). This excludes JB.
Could JB be the youngest son of Sarah Nix Allen?
JB has 3 different birth years... 1900 census, b. 1881. death cert, age 45 in 1929.. makes birthyear 1884 son Jack's delayed birth cert. says his father(Levi) (deceased) was born in 1886.
The Levi Allen who was married to Sarah Nix, was the son of Champion Allen, per the 1860 White Co, Ga census. This Champion Allen was married to Elizabeth Jackson.
1850 Habersham Co, Ga census, Champion and Elizabeth have children William, Levi, and Josephine.
JB's death cert say his parents were William Allen and Elizabeth Jackson. Is it possible that this William is Champion? Is it possible that my Levi Allen is the husband to Sarah Nix, and that Sarah is the mother to my James Ben Allen?
