Re: Civil War Grandchildren?
I wish I knew more about John Jackson Allen, His daughter Lucinda, was my grandmother. She married William Elison Pruet, a son of Sanford Ellison PRUET.
John Jackson Allen was born in Newton County, Georgia in 1822, he married Caroline Martin, in Coweta County, Georgia in 1852. They moved near Ashland, Alabama in 1856.
I suppose he was living in Newton County, Georgia, when he buried his father, mother, and sister. He lost touch with his twin brothers who were about five years old.
I do not know the name of the uncle, who took them.
