I saw this information on Bejamin Allen and wondered who this was ? I don't know anything about this family but guess it must be another family with same name. I know for sure that my Frances Allen was married to Valentine Allen in 1804 in South Carolina. They migrated to Bedford Co. Tn. in about 1807.As to Nicholas Q. Allen, he is a cousin of ours and I can check up on his papers. I'm corresponding with a member of that family that lives in Greensboro, NC and he, is also a Lawyer. So, I'll contact him and see if he knows where Nicholas's papers are stored.
