Janice, no luck with being related, however your William Allen is easier to locate than mine. Ancestry.com has several people that seem to know a bit about him listed. Are you in contact with - email@example.com? She seems to have a good bit of family info. on your people.I don't have a name for her, just the address. There's also a Ken Weaver - firstname.lastname@example.org - that seems to have a good bit of info. Also the Texas state site may help : http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/tx/txfiles.htmhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/tx/txfiles.htm We seem to need to trade places for awhile, as my people originated close to your area, and your's started near here. Good luck & best regards...........Dave.
