I have been looking for info on my husbands grandfather William Edward Allen from Sumter Co., AL but has NC links. b. 1873 d.1955 married Mary Battle she died 1903 then married Marys sister Martha Battle.
While searching for info on him I came across a Malinda Allen buried in Bucatunna Babtist Church Cem. in Clarke Co., Ms. says broken stone Malinda wife of R.C. Allen b. Nov. 9, 1830 d. April 6, 1910
In Sumter Co. AL Marriages there is a Malinda Whittle Married Richard Allen Jan. 3,1850
And in 1850 AL Census Richard Allen age:30 farmer --Malinda Allen age:20
I think this could be his parents but am not sure. I cant find where Richard Allen is buried at.
