It's so aggravating sometimes, you feel as if you're so close to solving this Allen family and then, you're stuck again.
I don't know if there is a relationship between these Allens and my Allens or not.Twins definitely ran in the Allen family.
Several Allen descendants in my line have the given name of Emory/Emery, but they wouldn't be your line as I know where they were and it wasn't TX.They never left GA.
Only have two Thomas Allens in the whole clan and they were both in the 1700's. Do have a couple of Allen men with the middle name of Thomas, but they are accounted for.
William seems to be the most popular name for the male Allens.Have a bunch of them, some would be a possibilty, the others are either accounted for or born too early or too late to be your William.
The William Allen I was looking for was born abt 1853 in GA and moved to Talladega Co.He is accounted for through 1870, as a 17 yr old in his parents' household in Talladega. After that, nothing more proven on him.
There was a Henry King-Abi Eiland marriage in my line of Allens, but I have very little on them. They married in 1847 Macon Co. AL.
