Hello, I also descend from William P. (i had heard that the P. stood for Porter, so Preston is new to me). William P. and Odecia Duvall Allen would be my great, great grandparents. I descend through Benjamin Franklin and Malinda, to Willis Franklin Allen and Minnie Gertrude Light Allen. So, your husband would have been a brother to my grandpa Willis Allen.
William and Odecia had only (4) children that I have: Bony, Benjamin Franklin, Ellen and Garland. I have Bony's real name as Joseph Bonergia is this correct?
