I don't think that I've heard that Benjamin Allen might befather of Asa Allen.None of Asa's children were namedBenjamin,but their 1st son was named Marma D. or Marmaduke.I believe Asa had a brother named Benjamin. I'm still looking for the Marmaduke!!!The Duke info you sent is the TN one.Very interesting about his war record--the sleeping on duty,whiskey taken away, and being paddled. Quite a story.One of these days Duke will turn up,if I just don't give up. It would be nice to find some more info on Francis also.Lost her about 1860 Walker Co. AL.
