Below are the families of Allens in Benton (now Calhoun) Co. AL.Can anyone tell me who these Allens descended from? Or can you place them with a family.The same with the ones in Talladega Co. AL.
My gg gndfather, Hiram Allen and some of the children moved from GA to Talladega Co AL sometime after 1860, and before 1862.
Then, my g grandfather, Columbus H. Allen married in Calhoun Co. AL, although as far as known he was living in Talladega at the time, but after his marriage he continued to live in Calhoun Co. the rest of his life, until his death in 1896.He had no sons only daughters.Columbus did have numerous brothers and sisters, some only half brothers and sisters, but they have been so hard to find.these half-siblings would have been born between 1820-1842. The only names known are Isom B. Allen, Titus G. F. Allen, and Elizabeth Allen who married Daniel U. Wood.Still missing are 4 males and 2 females.Columbus full blood siblings were Cynthia Eveline "Evie" married Robert Smith Parker. Vesta married Unknown.Twins, David and Amanda, David died young it seems, as no further record of him has been found since the 1850 census. Amanda may have married Asa T. Martin, but haven't been able to prove that she is the one who married him. There were another Martin-Allen marriage, in the family.Josiah/Joshua Allen may have died young as he only found on two censuses 1850-1860. It's possible that he was out of the house by 1870 as he would have been about 20 yrs of age. Last is William Allen who was 17 on the 1870 census living in his parents household in Talladega.
I'm trying to connect some of these Allens to my Hiram Allen either as a son or perhaps a cousin, as Hiram has been listed as the only son of West Allen & Abigail Williams.Although Hiram did have 6 siters.
