Cheryl you and I have shared info. in the past on the Jackson Co., GA Allens. my 2nd great grandpa Hiram Allen b. ca. 1788-1795 was in Jackson Co. from at least the 1830's if not before.Before that he was in SC.
As of now, I have not been able to absolutely connect him to the other Allens in Jackson Co.
This man had at least 16 children from 2 marriages but finding some of the sons has been next to impossible.Ther's at least 4 from the first marriage nothing is known of including their names. Do know who two sons were, Isom B. Allen and Titus G. Allen.Isom had 7 sons from his second marriage and two from his first marriage.As far as I know there are still numerous male line Allens from my line living in or around Jackson Co.
From the second marriage, there were 3 sons, and only one, mine Columbus H. Allen is there anything known about them.C. H. along with his father, Hiram Allen and Cynthia Wofford (Cooley) Allen moved to Talladega Co. GA about 1861.
Hiram and Cynthia were living in their son-in-law, Robert Smith Parker and daughter Cynthia Evaline "Evie" household in 1880, in Talladega.He was listed as age 92.As far as I know he left no will, or anything naming his children.I was hoping one of the descendants had the family Bible, but if they do, they "ain't talking."
