I am so glad to hear from someone who knows something about this family.My father Seth Robert ALLEN thought that James Shelton ALLEN son of Robert ALLEN was his father, and that Lenora was his other. I have sent in all my information to Lawrence County Archives,concerning this Allen family, as I located a whole bunch in Summertown in 1997.Shell Allen died. abt. 1920, buried in Barnesville Cemetery, Summertown, and He was married to 1.Mary Gibson, they had about 4-5 children, and then he married Mary Hayes. I visited them in 1997 and talk with them often.But they do not believe they are ALLENS, They think Mary Hayes ran around on Shell and had other children. Did you know anything about Sarah BRADLEY ALLEN who was Robert Allens second wife. His first wife was Elizabeth Bradley, maybe they were sisters. let me hear from you soon, I am so anxious to find out more.
