I'm also trying to connect a Columbus H. (C. H.) Allen b. 1848 in Ga, with a family from around Atlanta.He married in Calhoun Co. Al., Rachel Lloyd.He had two daus by her, Lula E. Allen and Nancy C. Allen ( she married Rev R. H. Martin).In his will he also names daus. Mary A. Allen and Cyntha Wileman.He must have been married before he married Rachel as these two aren't her children.He died in Calhoun Co., AL in 1896. Executors of the estate beside his wife was Smith Parker.If any of these names mean anything to you or to anyone else, please let me know.
