Hi Mike, I've been doing some Allen research for several years.My neighbor and best friend is nee Allen; my g-grand mother was an Allen.I've been trying to tie the families together. Just this past Friday I met with my friend's Dad (James Allen) and got all their info.
He stems from a Zebulon Allen b. 27 November 1727, Deerfield, Franklin, Mass - according to family records.
Zebulon Allen b. 27 November 1727; d. 15 February 1786 (Bernardston, Hampshire Co., Mass) Married: Freedom Cooley b. 1734; d. 16 September 1801
parents= Joseph Allen b. 1702; d. 17 July 1785 + Hannah CLESSON
Zebulon's child = Johathan Allen b.20 April 1766; d.28 August 1836
I've been working on the Allen's from CT/RI Silas Place Allen, the son of James Allen and Experience Place.
We may have a hit (for my friend at least)! Regards, Nancy
