I don't know if the lines are related, but their don't seem to be many ALLEN posts from TN. I have a Lydia ALLEN born in 1797. her father was William Allen from Overton Co. TN. She had at least one brother, Rev. John S. Allen who later became a well=known buisnessman and pioneer of Bethany, Harrison Co., Mo. She married Beverly Travis and had 10 children. At some point they moved to ILL and then to Mo. where he was a pioneer of Harrison Co.
