I don't know if these lines have any connections or not. There is a very interesting line of Sylvanus Allens. I hope some of this connects and helps solve some of these tough Allen connections
Edward Allen m Ann Brinker Coleman Sylvanus Allen m. Jemima Starbuck b. 1706 Sylvanus Allen II m. Abigail Kidder & Sarah Russell Sylvanus Allen III m. Rebecca Pope Sylvanus Allen IV m. Susan Wood
There was another Sylvanus brother that died in Madgascar abt 1838.
There was a Sylvanus in 1745 that bought land in Richmond Co, VA and sold it in 1746.
My Sylvanus d. abt 1817 m. Molly Allen d. 1843. She also named 4 Goldman/Gouldman granddaughters. She died in Spotsylvania Co, VA.
I am convinced there are other Sylvanus Allens from this line.
Edward Allen m Ann Brinker Coleman David Allen David Allen m Unkown Baker (Esther) Mary Baker's sister?
David Allen & Adoniram Allen Rev War vets claim to be related to Ethan Allen in a infomation posted on the site. Many of these relates moved to NC, Georgia, Ky, In, Ala, & many other states. It all fits with family history.
I know I go back to major land holders through Mary Stribling's line. My line goes back to the Washington, Taliaferro, Townley, Grymes, Butler, William the Conquer, Catlett,Warner, Pope, Morris, Kinney.
