William G. Allen was born in North Carolina about 1821.He married Hanna Crumley, daughter of Benjamin Crumley and Hannah Plunkett, on December 18, 1845 in Habersham County, Georgia.William and Hanna had five children:
Stanhope Irvin born Nov. 31, 1846 or 1847 Suezanna Indiana A. born c1848 Josephine J. A. born 1849 Burnesia Althie E. born c1852 Hannah Jan Ann born Dec. 14, 1854 and died Jan. 4, 1936-She was the wife of James Ervin Satterfield.
William and Hannah lived in Dawson County, Georgia before making their final residence near Crossville in DeKalb County, Alabama. The land, just outside the city limits, is now owned by Auburn University.William, Hannah, and their daughter Hannah were charter members of the crossville First United Methodist Church , where all three are now buried.Hannah was born on June 22, 1823 and died in January 1885.After her death William married on Nov. 14, 1886 Elizabeth H. Wallace in DeKalb County.William died in Nov. 1893.You can find your Crumley ancestors by going to http://www.familytreemaker.comhttp://www.familytreemaker.com and entering William G. Allen, then look for descendants of James Crumley.I am stuck on the father of William.If William was in Habersham County in 1840, then there are four Allens that could be his father. According to the census index Benjamin Crumley was on page 136 of the census.Benjamin Allen and John C. Allen were on page 134.james L. Allen was on page 148 and Carter Allen was on page 149.I have seen a net entry that stated that James Allen was born in 1806.If that is true then it would reduce the chance of him being William's father.The actual census, which I don't have, might shed some more light.
