If you have birth dates you may find a connection with these Valentine Allens as it is an unusual name and they tend to pass names on down: William Valentine Allen dob 3/8/1843 married Rebecca Crowder on 7/24/1862. Buried at Coopers Chapel Cemetery, south of Covington, IN, is Valentine Allen and Selina Allen (dates not legible). History of Fountain Co. IN lists Valentine Allen, son of John Preston Allen Jr. but further down it lists JPA Jr's children and he is not listed.I believe Valentine was actually son of JPA Sr. (this is where I come in).Either way your Valentine may be a descendant. John Preston Allen Sr. came to Indiana from NC.
