My great grandfather was Henry Sexton Allen from Paladaga County, Alabama. His son was William Alexander Allen and my father is Shelton Allen. They settled in Downsville, LA., where my dad lives now. He remembers Lum Allen and said we are related to him. I am going over there this weekend to check the tomstones for dates and names. Please let me know is this is helpful and I will try to give you more information later next week. Patsy Allen McLean.
