Thankyou for the help. I have found another Allen site that listed the family line right down to Benjamin Allen who went on to Nova Scotia.In this list he says that Samuel Allen married Mary Pratt, the daughter of Joseph Alden and Mary Simmons.Also there are two books, both n the History of Bridgewater and both state that Samuel married Mary Alden. Could Joseph and Mary Simmon adopted a daughter? Also, I have found a Pratt family with the name Teancum out of Utah.Do you know anything about them. Also could Samuel Allen have married one of Joseph Aldens granddaughters?This mystery has got me bugged and I would like to find out all I can. Thankyou for all your help!!
