Hello! I guess mornstarr's email was returned back to me for I suspect that we are related very closely so will find out because we live many miles apart. I was interested in your post saying that you suspsect that we are cousins? I knw that my mom is Ora Chess and grandma is Martha Allen Chess. She even had an affair with Frank Hawk. But I do know that I talked with other cousin Cheryl who told me that her grandfather was John Allen and he told her that they had cherokee blood so I don't know yet if rumors are true yet because my own family said that my grandma only had my mom who had cherokee blood. So, will try to reach this sibling of mine and see if she posted those in here. but while I am waiting to hear from her, I amhoping if you have information on Martha Allen and her husband Clarence Chess as well as Martha's parents are John Fredrick Allen and Emma Barrett. I don't have information goes back farther than that but it seems that John had second wife, do you have information? I would love those informtion. I even have John Allen's picture as well as Martha Allen as a baby sitting with her parents. Hope to year from you soon. Bye for now.
