Not related..........just a lookup
Per his WW1 Draft Registration.....you are right.
Will Henry Allen

resides: Parker Co, TX
Nearest relative: Cora Allen (wife), same address
He was: Tall, medium built, blue eyes, black hair
He signed.....Will Henry Allen
12 Sept 1918 in Parker Co, TX.
The 1900 census will really confuse things.I also had a family unit like this....2nd marriage for both h & w....both brought children into the marriage......some of the children married each other....ofcourse they were not blood related but viewing them as a family unit on the census records is a little weird.

Per census records Cora was older than William Allen.Appears from this census record that the new wife of Alec Chapman, Eliza, was the mother of your William H. Allen and she married the father of your Cora Chapman...
The dau, Clemie Allen, I am not sure if the first name is right, faded and hard to read. Clemie is my best guess.
From the TREEs I found this is the Chapman husband (Cora's father) death record.He is also buried at same cemetery.
Texas Death Index, 1903-2000

Sometimes you will have results working all the siblings,
Clemie Allen md Tobe Bell
he states given name is Tobia Orest Bell bn 22 Jan 1878 on his WW1 draft registration.
William's other sister:
Md:02 Jan 1901 Parker Co, TX
H. H. Nichols
***notice on the 1920 TX, Parker Co census that Ada Nichols bn ARK, sister to William, widowed, is living with William and Cora.***
Maybe one of the sister's OBITS or death records will give the surname of mother or name of father.Worth a try.
Eliza T. Chapman is still alive on the 1930 TX, Tarrant Co census and she is living with married dau, Mamie (Chapman) and husband Cecil Avery.Mamie (bn abt 1905) appears to be the only child that Eliza T. ? and Alexander Samuel Chapman had together. Maybe a delayed birth record????Seems Parker County TX may hold lots of clues for you.
Hope something here is the right family group and will be of help in your search.
