I am not sure what line of Allen's you are looking for, but my grandfather was born in KY. His name was Willis Allen. I think he was born around 1880, not sure where in KY. None fo my aubts know where he was born, and KY.,says they have no records of him. It was to long ago. He eventually settled in SO. ILL., where he met and married my grandmother. Her name was Clara Edith Nichols, and they raised 13 children together. Let me know if this sounds familiar, I am sure we could help each other. Thank you !!!!!!!
