Thanks for the offer.At this point in my genealogical search, I have no ties to the Allens.I found an Allen Family History book in a local used bookstore (as well as a Thomas Family History) and offered to do look-ups for people.I have just finished indexing both and am beginning to put both on computer for easier access.
Here is the information that is listed in this book (about 70 pages) on the family you are researching.Hope it helps.
