Linda, we might be related. Hugh Allen married Frances Morton and moved from Blount County Tenn. to Wayne County Indiana. I am descended from a Jonathan Allen but I have been unable to determine exactly which one. He lived in Breathitt County, Ky at least from 1850 until his death some time after 1880. Some sources indicate he was born in Indiana in 1817 but I have been unable to confirm this.
Hugh and Frances had a son named Jonathan who was reported to have been born in 1818 in Wayne County, In. Was this my Jonathan? I don't know. If you could shed some light on this I would be eternally grateful.
There is a web site that gives the ancestry of Hugh back to about 1700 in Maryland. They were Quakers who moved from Maryland to Orange County, NC then to Blount County, Tenn. then to Wayne County, In. Hugh is reported to have died in Grant County, In.
If you want the web site, email me at email@example.com. Also if this Jonathan is my ancestor, I can give you quite a bit of info about your distant cousins.
