I am a newbie to this and even this confuses me. I am the lucky owner of to grandfathers with the same name. one is a grandfather the other is a g-grandfather. My grandfather is DC Allen-m-Dovie Barnes in 1902, Remmel, Jackson County, Arkansas. Now it seems as though my g-grandfather is DC Allen-m-Lizzie T.J. Hall in 1879, Lauderdale County,Arkansas.
Both are named Dorsey, my grandfather has gone by Dossie, Doss, and DC.
The story behind my g-grandfather is that His name was Dorsey C Allen and was married to a Janie or Jane. They had at least 2 children, Doss and Florence E. Allen. my grandfather (Doss) was long gone before I was born in 1954, but I ran into a cousin on here and Florence was her g-grandmother. Florence said she grew up around germantown, Shelby county Tennessee. She was raised by a Layton family there and just before she reached the age of 18, through mutual agreement she left Tennessee and hitched to Earle, Crittenden County Arkans where she met up with her brother Doss. She didnt remember if she grew up with him or how she even knew she had a brother. she couldnt tell Paula how she even knew that Doss was in Earle. But some how she did and they met up shortley there after she met and married her husband RL Carter in 1903.
I am guessing at DC Allen and Lizzie T.J. Hall but judging my grandfather my Allens were not adventursome. And Lauderdale county only has Tipton county seperating it from Shelby county and Shelby county is just across the river from Earle or Crittenden County. Can some one help me with this please. Is anyone kin to Lizzie out there, maybe your research will let me know if im on the right track. Any help would be appreciated.
