Searching for my Uncle. 1936-1941 era. Surname Allen, Gunn or Johnson.
Mary Elizabeth Allen was born in 1918 in Columbus, Ga. She is the 2nd child born to Raymond & Jessie Allen. Mary is the 4th child of 9 born to Jessie Lee Hinton Gunn Allen Gunn. Jessie married Jesse Jones Gunn in 1906 and had 2 children, William and Lila. She then divorced Jesse and married Raymond Allen in 1913 in Columbus Ga. Sometime after 1920 Jesse and Raymond divorced or separated and she went back to Jesse Gunn and they had 5 more children Howard, Helen, Garland, Marion, & Wilson. They lived in Madison County, Ala. Around 1936 Mary Elizabeth Allen married a man by the name of Eugene Johnson; they separated shortly after they married. In that same time frame she gave birth to a son who by family member’s remembrance named Leroy. We are not sure if his last name is Allen, Gunn, Johnson or possibly an unknown name. We are not sure if Leroy is his first, middle or nickname. Mary was unable to care for him so her oldest brother William and his wife Willie took the new born boy and possibly adopted him. They lived in the Guntersville/Hebron area. When he was 3 years old according to family remembrance he drank Clorox and he died. The only info we have is he is buried in Marshall County, Alabama. We have been searching for 10 years for his correct name and where he is buried at. If anyone has any information PLEASE contact us. We are desperate to find him.
