"Allens of the Southern States."

Drury Allen, Jr. was born May 20, 1806 in Edgefield Co., SC. He died April 13 1908 in Erath Co., TX nearly a year after the community celebrated his 100th birthday. He was buried at Piolt Knob Cem. in Erath Co., TX. Mr. Allen was married twice: (1) December 26, 1826 in Clarke Co., AL to Elizabeth Buckelew. (2) April 12, 1841 in Clarke County, to Elizabeth Wood, the widow of John Wood and the daughter of William Allen and his wife, nee Mary Hicks. Drury Allen, Jr. was on the 1830 Census of Clarke Co., AL with a wife and two daughters under 10 years of age. He was not found in the 1840 census, but his son, Edmund was born in Wilcox Co, AL in Dec. 1840. Drury's first wife, nee Elizabeth Buckelew, died soon after the birth of Edmund, and Drury remarried and settled near Choctaw Corners where he was still living when the Rev. Ball compiled his history and family sketches for that area. Ball's book included a sketch about this family. At sometime after 1880, Drury Allen removed to Texas where several of his sons and other relatives had settled. During the last few years of his life, Drury lived in Stephenville, Erath Co., TX with his son, Benjamin Franklin Allen. On his 100th birthday, relatives and friends of Drury had an all day celebration in his honor.
