My greatgrandfather was John Zimry Allen born 9-14-1931 in N.C. He was married to Elizabeth Jane Deese. They are both buried in a cemetery in Rock Hill, SC. I have been unable to find any info about the parents of either of them. Based on my grandmother's long straight black hair and dark skin I wonder if the Allens were part Native American. I have discovered that Allen is a common name in the Cherokee Nation. Can anyone help with this? wife of Joe Penn
