I am sorry to say that I do not have any known relation to any Allens actually Benson-I do have a line that were in Woodstock around 1770 who later (1800-1830's) moved to Missouri. This family had close connections with the family of Woods, Cottle and Turner -- all originating in Bridgewater, Plymouth and Braintree, MA. I do have twice removed marriage of a Allen child to a Waldo descended Child for June 28, 1741.If I can help further let me know. I am desperately seeking any knowledge of other persons from Benson, Rutland Co. VT!! As you probably know, Vermont research is a chore.If you have any names related or otherwise that you can pass along it may prove to be my missing link! Family names I am searching - Olmstead, Howard, Barber.Years in Benson 1802 to 1860, possibly eariler/later.
