Thus far, I've only had the chance to glance at our Allen ancestry. The earliest ancestor I can
trace through census records is William A Allen, born ca 1808 in Georgia. By 1860, William is in
Harrison County, Mississippi, and married to Myrtle Malvina Wheeler. I have a death date of
1904 for William, however, Malvina Allen is in the household with her son Marion on the
1900 census, listed as a widow.

William and Myrtle's son, Thomas Alvin Allen, born 17 April 1870, married Alice Eudora Creel on
30 Apr 1893. Alice was born 18 Jan 1876, the daughter of Reverend William Ransom Creel and
Sabra Mahalean Whittington. Thomas died 3 Nov 1930, Alice on 24 Nov 1949.

Thomas' and Alice's daughter, my grandmother, Addie Evelyn Allen, was born 2 Mar 1895. She
married William Avington Woodcock on 31 Dec 1912. She died on 7 Nov 1986. She, her parents,
and paternal grandparents are all buried in Allen Cemetery in Long Beach, Mississippi.

Alice Weber, a Woodcock cousin and genealogist from the Mississippi Gulf Coast has written a book
on Allen Cemetery which includes the genealogies of the families buried there. This wonderful
contribution to the history of Long Beach is available now. Contact Alice directly for ordering information.
