Hi Joyce. I've accidentally sent a message to you via Genform (responded to original e-mail). To recap. I checked this weekend and found that my line's Allens are from CT and VT and came to TN (Chattanooga) with my grandfather George Lawrence Davison. His mother was Hannah Allen, daughter of Augustus Allen of VT and CT so my line is from New England via Chicago and as far as I know came to TN when George and Lucretia Magill moved to Chatta. moved from Chicago. (More info. on the other e-mail correspondeance. My new found second cousin Vicki McClinton (see Magill site) has a grandmother in her line that goes back to a Claudia Mae Allen from 9I think) AL but the northern area of AL so she might be a connect for you as there are a lot of shared ancestry passing back and forth from/to AL/TN . You might want to check out the Magill site(William Marshall and William Hopson ) if you wish to see if her Allens and yours are connected.
