Most of the Alabama Counties involved in this family line are Bibb, Pickens and Tuscaloosa. But, even that is conjecture as it is based on the families we believe are related to Amaziah Allen. His death certificate said his father was Emery Allen and his mother was Matidla Reed. He married Nancy Alabama Virginia Johnson (sometimes found as Johnston).
The closest we have come up is the Thomas E. Allen and Nancy Matilda Reed / Reid discussed in the prior message.
We were able to document Nancy's parents through census records: Benjamin B. Johnson and Rebecca Jones. There is a marriage record for them in Alabama, and that agrees with the death certificate for the parents of Nancy.
Guess we will both keep looking. If I spot a Hiram somewhere, I will let you know.
