Sidney was the son of John Howard Allen and Polly Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Rowell) Allen.

Sidney married Martha Mary Jane McDaniel on February 29,1908, in the home of the Rev. H. Harrelson in Carmichael Township, Dillon, Dillon County, South Carolina. They had two daughters.

1--Gertrude [1909-????]
2--Cora [1912-????]

Sidney was a member of the Mount Calvary Baptist Church.

We do not have a picture of Sidney.

After the death of Mary Jane, Sidney married a lady named Ruth Herring, daughter of Ferdinard and Ellen (Horne) Herring. I am showing they had two daughters, and maybe a son who died before his Dad.

1--William [1914-????]
2--Ivy [????-????]
3--Josie [????-????]

No information available on the marriage of Sidney and Ruth or on their children.

Issue Dated: December 21, 1950.
