My maiden name is Allen. My grandfather was Russell Clifton Allen, born around 1890, died 1939. His father was Benjamin Franklin Allen. He may have originated in Jefferson County, GA. Both are buried in Emanuel County, GA. Russell Clifton had brothers - Willie Eugene, Roger, and Elmer (that I know of) and sister Lee who married Benton Huff. Russell Clifton married Elmer Myrtice Turner from Emanuel County. An ancestor, but I don't know how far back, was a judge who used initials J.R.L. Allen. I believe he lived in Jefferson County.Does any of this sound familiar? If so, I would appreciate any information.
