I am seeking further information in an effort to connect to the Allen family who lived in the New York City area in the late 30's, and earlier.
In 1938 at least, Nathan R. Allen lived on E. 79th Street, and I would love to be able to follow him up from there, as I know that he had children but I cannot obtain their names from records I've found thus far.I believe he was one of the many ALLEN attorneys from that area and that time period, but he may also have been a broker.
I am also hoping to connect (informationally) with another member of the same ALLEN family in the New York AREA, who would have been quite a well-known organist in NYC around the turn-of-the-century.I believe his name may have been ROBERT ALLEN, but he may also have been a senior NATHAN ALLEN.
There was also a female member of the ALLEN family (unknown given name) would is supposed to have been quite a good oil painter.Being interested in oil painting myself, I was hoping to learn who she was as well, but she was probably not born until the early 1900's, probably around 1920 or so.
I would very much love to hear from anyone who has ALLEN FAMILY connections from the NYC area...perhaps we'll be able to link up.
