I believe that we are related through our Allen connection. I am descended from Asa Clayton Allen through his grandson Asa Franklin Allen and his daughter Ophelia Victoria Allen (Mrs. Aderholt). The Anniston Public library has a lot of information on the Allens that is available on-line. I have read that Asa Clayton Allen was a "colonel" and this has puzzled me because I have never found any record of his military service. However, I did find an interesting letter in the Georgia Archives that Asa wrote to the GA governor requesting supplies to fight the Indians. I would love to exchange information with you.
