Yes, I do have some info on your family -

Ben Gilmore Amerson did marry a Jennie Bell Swain. He had a brother named John Breedlowe. Ben died in 1911 and is buried in a cemetery in McNairy, Tenn. Their parents were John Gilmore and Orlena Amerson. The boys were orphaned in 1865 as that is when John died. ? if wife died at this time or before John. I have a copy of the petion for guardinship for the boys by their uncle Amos Young Amerson.
Per my aunt Ben and Jennie had 10 kids but she only listed 2 - Your Allen Marion and a Ollie Pearl who married an Albert Plunk. My aunt listed 8 kids for Allen Marion as Orvalle,Raymond,Hurley,Hazel,Verdine,Larry,Maurie and Muerl. Possible grandparents of Ben and John are Jasper and Eliza (McDonald) Amerson. It is possible that my ggg grandfather Benjamin is the brother of John Gilmore and son of Jasper.

Most of this is not proven yet but the part about Amos and the guardianship. I could sent you a copy of the petion papers if you wish. I can also put you in contact with a direct des. of Amos Young Amerson who may have some of this info documented.
I do believe at this time that the info I gave you is true, we just have to prove it. I can give you a little more info on Jasper and Eliza if you are interested. Would love to share the current info you have and I can keep you up to date on my research if you are interested. You can re-post here or e-mail me.

Hope this is helpful.

Robin Amerson
