My sincere thanks to Eleanor Allen Haas for the followup. I have learned that the Benjamin F. Allen I am researching had two brothers: George, born around 1832, and Edward, born, around 1846, both from Stewart Co., Tenn. Their mother, Mary, was born in Tenn. in 1815. I do not know who the father (husband) was. If anyone can help, please post a followup. Thank you!
