My Grandmother said that my Grandfather's people were "River Choctaw". I was too young to question her on what she meant. There is a tradition of Indian heritage, but no kin, that I have been able to contact, have any proof. My Allens do not seem to have disclosed their Indian heritage. Surnames attached to my Allen line are Casey, Pomeroy, Spradlin, Bloodworth, Ransom and possibly Witt or DeWitt. My line started in Maryland, and then progressed through Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas before settling in the Indian Territory in the 1890's. Do any of these names ring any bells?
