looking for info on James Paul Allen born in GA Oct 4, 1819---married Sicily (probably supposed to be spelled Cecily)? born GA Dec 18, 1821--James died in Attala County, MS Jul 24, 1864 and Sicily died Jan 1897 Attala County--their children were: Williamborn ca 1837 G. Franklin (think George)b June 21, 1844-d June 2, 1881 Mary E. b 8/2/1846 Attla County-d 3/1925--married John Berry Burrell Martha b abt 1850
Anne Elizabeth b 3/1/1853--1/19/1884 married John Berry's brother Samuel Jefferson Burrell
Georgeana b 9/17/1855-d 10/19/1895 married John Jenkins (uncle of Samuel Jefferson Burrell's 2nd wife Mary Ann Jenkins b 1867)Mary Ann would name her 2nd child Sicily and have a photo made of her, her husband and his first wife Anne Elizabeth Allen (she is young girl in photo) it has perplexed descendants for years.
Henrietta b 1858 may have married a Caldwell--there were a lot of Henriettas that year in Attala County
who was Sicily Allen--was she a Burrell or a Jenkins? they intermarried a lot and the story was that Sicily was an old French name (Cecily) and these Attala County Burrells were descended from Jean Burel a French doctor who came to U.S. with Lafayette
