I have a great grandfather in Titus Co Tx in 1860,1870,and in Franklin Co Tx in 1880, his name was William Allen, he was born abt 1823 in Tn,reported on census in 1880. He had a large family of girls, was married twice, and in the years missing children there could be room for sons who were old enough to be away from home. I have lots of info, on East Tx Allens, none specifically on Jessie. Will gladly share with you. Perhaps you can fill in my blanks. Thanks for asking. Nell Elam.
