There is a family tree floating around for Benjamin Allen, but I am not convinced it is correct. My grand father was very specific that we were the "welsh Allens not the irish Allens) and while the tree that is supposed to be Benjamin's is not irish, it is English and no Welsh in it. In my research I ran across another grand child of Benjamin Allen's who had the same story about being Welsh.
Thank you for helping me fill in one of my branches. Do you have information on any of the other Benjamin Allen children?
