I am searching for information on the Allen family from Walton County,
Georgia. My great-great grandfather was Martin Daniel Allen. He was born
in Walton County in 1834. I am trying to find out who his parents,brother,
and sisters were. I believe that he had a brother named John, along with
two sisters. The family left Georgia sometime in the 1840's, or early 1850's,
and moved to the Franklin County/Lawrence County area of Alabama. Any help
will be greatly appreciated.

I am writing on a long shot that someone just might have some information
on Eliza Pendergrass Beck, and Absolom M. Beck. In the 1900 Walton County,
GA census, they had two surviving children, one which was my grandfather,
Absolom N. Beck . We never knew him, he married my grandmother, Mattie
Luckey, around 1913 and they had six children. By 1923 he had disappeared
and no one ever heard or saw him again. My grandmother and their
children did not even know his family, but thanks to a new web site of
John Pendergrass's descendents we found our grandfather Absolom Nixon Beck,
via his mother, Eliza A. Pendergrass Beck. If you have any of the names
in your lineage or have anything, no matter how small, I would appreciate
hearing from you. The names of Eliza and Absolom's children were
Absolom Nixon Beck, born 1880; M. E. Beck 1878; H. M. Beck 1875; and J.
W. Beck 1871. I also believe that Absolom M. Beck was the son of George
Beck, who was the son of John C. Beck, who was the son of DeVault Beck
who decended from Jakob. But can't quite get the dates to match.
Any information will be gratefully accepted. Thank you.

Do you have any information concerning the children of John Hastings
Dial? I believe my G G Grandmother, Isabella Dial Brown, to be one of his
children. He was the father of at least 15 children but only 10 have been
identified. My G G Grandmother is not among the identified children. She
is not listed on any census or other reports with John Hastings Dial or
any of his six brothers. She states on the 1850 census report of Talladega
County Alabama, that she was born in South Carolina, and according to the
age given she would have been born about 1814. She was in the Walton County
area in the early 1830s, as she was married in adjoining Morgan County
in 1832. Her name was misspelled on the marriage book as, Isabel Deal.
( This might account for her being overlooked by researchers of the Dial
family line.) She was in the Talladega County area prior to 1840. John
Hastings Dial was in South Carolina in 1814, so was Isabella, he was in
the Walton County area in the early 1830s, so was Isabella, he was in Talladega
County Alabama prior to 1840, so was Isabella. Most of the Dial family
was of the Methodist faith, so was Isabella. She named her first son, Lewis
Martin Brown, and her second son, William Dial Brown. She was proud of
her Dial linage, but she has never been listed on any Dial Family line
that I can find. Any response would be appreciated. Charles Brown
