Greetings, My family lore also claims relation to Ethan Allen...enough lore to keep the name alive as a middle name for several generations..but I of course have my doubts.In any case , do your records show anything about an Allen woman married to a Roberts? They had 2 children; Eleanor( c 1824-1871 )and Sam.They probably had more , but I don't know about them. It was said that the No Name Allen who married the Roberts was an illegitimate descendant of thatrake Ethan. Eleanor married Ralph Jewell. That's all I have to go on at the moment.
