    All Southern families are familiar with Magnolia's, their dark green foliage and the beautiful blossoms. Two Southern States, Mississippi and Louisiana claim the beautiful flower as their state flower.

    "Magnolia's" are the theme graphics for the pages. They were specially designed for Melba's Southern Familes by Cheri's graphics.

    Your Family
    Are They Listed Here?


There are and were so many wonderful families in the South. It's difficult to try and decide which family takes priority over the other too research and work. "IF YOU" have your Family History typed out and ready to edit, I will try and place it on Southern Families. I do not have the time to type Family Histories for the many who request their families be included on Southern Families. Help me to help you, the researcher.

ALLEN'S

Are you an ALLEN descendant? I would appreciate your help on the Allen Families from Anson County, North Carolina and the early Allen's who lived in Tennessee and came to Marengo County, Alabama by 1830. Joseph Allen was in Marengo by 1830 when the census was taken. His oldest children were listed as born in Tennessee 1810-1812. His first wife was Rhoda and could be "Briggs". There is a marriage record from MA., 1809 Joseph Allen marrying Rhoda Briggs. Appreciate your help on this line of Allen's

Do you have "Probate Records" or "Wills" on early Virginia and North Carolina, Allen's?Especially "WILLS"! you will be given credit for your donation and you will be helping others to find their ancestors.
