Deanne, Do you have any more information on your Allen/Allison line? I have several Allen/Allison connections on two sides of my family that came to Alabama from N.C.>KY. Ananias Allen (1756-1840) married Elizabeth Laxton (1757-1840) in 1775 in Wilkes Co.,N.C. then they went to Adair Co., KY before settling in Jackson Co., AL. Any connection?
