Or even one you think might have been an ALLEN before her marriage?
Three different people with ALLEN ancestresses in VA born in the period before 1750 have now tested mtDNA, that I know of, with three different results.If we can find other people who are eligible to test mtDNA and who go back to the time period, we may be able to build a nice little database of the mtDNA of ALLEN women in VA before the end of the Revolution.
mtDNA donors may be male or female, but from them back to the ALLEN or suspected ALLEN woman you need to have all females in the line.
If you or a sister, aunt, cousin, etc. are eligible, please contact me.
If you have already tested mtDNA and your line meets the ALLEN qualification, please contact me.The three ALLEN women I know about are all mitogroup K.
