I would welcome hearing from your contact researching Allen's line. Since I posted the original message, we have actually found 150 pages of letters to and from Allen's son James Marion Kelzer (that line apparently changed to Kelzer from Kilzer) and his sisters Martha Lou Kelzer and Elizabeth Miranda Kelzer, as well as with their father Allen. Lots of great info flowing as we read the letters. These letters are dated beginning in 1858, when James Marion Kelzer left his family behind in Hartsville, Tennessee, and apparently went to medical school in New Orleans and then bought a medical practice in Cayuga, Mississippi. He went into the army in 1862 and died at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, right back near where his family still was. The letters are fascinating but we haven't had time to read them all yet.
