I need to make a correction to the above message that I put in today! It was not Boney Allen that went to Illinois, but rather his brother, E.Garland "Garlie" Allen, who married 12/4/1911 in Ohio County, KY to Ola Duvall. They had three children: Gussie, Evelyn and Garlie, Jr. They moved to East St. Louis, Illinois and the family in KY lost contact with them.
I am related, and doing research on the Allen Family. I would like to know if any of their family is still living! I am sure they must have had grandchildren. (Thank you, Debbie, for your personal email.)
