MyAunt who is 93 said, her momma told herthat when her dad, Columbus H. Allen, died he was sent back to Atlanta for burial, but that isn't true, he is buried at Eulaton Meth. Ch. Cem. in Calhoun Co. Al.I've wondered if it was Columbus's father that passed away and was sent back to Atlanta for burial. Supposely they lived on Peachtree St. in Atlanta.I've found no proof as of yet.
My dad thought that his grandfater's name was Christopher Columbus Allen.Again, I believe this might be the father, but no proof.I did find a Christopher Columbus Allen that got land grants in Al. but haven't been able to find anymore on him either.There were lots of Allens living in and around Calhoun Co. Al, when Columbus and Rachel Lloyd married, but haven't been able to connect any of them to Columbus.
As I said earlier, no one in the family even knew about the other two daughters, Mary A. Allen and Cyntha Allen Wileman.And even with the will, They are still trying to deny that he had the other two daughters.No one in the family ever talked about the Allen side of the family, and if youquestion them on it, they say, let the dead lie.So I'm pretty sure there is something there,but what I have no idea, and not knowing is driving me nuts, if you know what I mean.Was he married before and deserted his wife, did she died, did they get divorced? I have no idea.But I will still keep searching, someone out there is sitting on a goldmine and don't know it.
