Terry's Texas Rangers

I was doing a little research and noticed that George R. Allen 1841 – 1924 (my 3rd great grand uncle) Son of Jeremiah Allen 1806 – 1883 my 4th great grandfather was a member of Terry's Texas Rangers.
"The unit earned a reputation that ranked it among the most effective mounted regiments in the Western Theater of the American Civil War."

He attended the 1902 reunion in Dallas and is probably in this picture.Too bad we don't know which one he is. Ill have to keep researching.

Update:  I have a larger version of the picture above.

Henry Clay Allen and Edna Eliza Timmons

My second great grandfather paternally was Henry Clay Allen. I knew the name, but it took me lots of time and research to connect this Henry with the Henry I knew I was looking for. Many people had suspected Henry Clay Allen was my great, great grandfather:

A reference for Henry as the Father of William Louis Allen:


More links referring to Edna and Henry.






I decided to see if these two were living closely when the 1880 federal census was taken. They were listed six pages apart. Henry's family is on page 40.  Edna and her 8 month old son William is listed living with her parents the Timmons on page 45.
