Debbie, I was thrilled to finally get a response to my query on the Allens! So good to hear from another Allen cousin! Since I had told something about our family, you know that we came through Benjamin Franklin Allen's son, Arnet Byron Allen. My (first) husband, Arnett Conley Allen, was second child of Arnet and Era T. (Hocker) Allen. He died in 1988. We had four children: Larry, Elizabeth, Annette and Angela.
Do you have any contact with family of Boney Allen?I cannot find any connection! They moved from here, in Ohio County, Ky. to Illinois, and there we lost them! Willis's sister, Erna (Allen) Flener, lives near me.
I would love to know more about your family line. I knew Willis and Gertrude, and correspond with Lagrada occasionally. From which child did you descend? What I would like is to get names and dates for all their grandchildren! Could you please fill me in, on these? You may email me privately, at firstname.lastname@example.org I will be looking forward to hearing from you! Erma McKinley
