Hi, Maxine:I have some information on Nicholas Q. He is one of the sons of our Valetine and Ann Frazier Allen, Jr. He along with his brother, Valentine C. were prominent lawyers in Rhea and I think Meigs Co. As to the connection with the Allen family, I can't help you there. I checked my Rhea Co. book but there are no Allens in there except our line. I can give you dates of birth, children, etc. of the family but that is about all I have. My GGGrandfather, P.J. Allen was a brother to Valentine, but really didn't keep in touch much since he migrated down to Texas in 1835. Let me know if you want anymore of the family infor.
