I'm related to Henry Davis Allen too. (GGGG grandfather) Do you have any info regarding his father, Thomas Allen, other than birth and death dates?Also, did you write for the papers regarding Rhody being a patriot?I have a friend who is editor of The DAR INDEX and she told me this: Patriotic Service from NC."He wasn't in the military but did some patriotic deed, like Express rider;gunsmith; Signer of petition; wheelwright; spy; etc ... etc ... His papers would tell you what he did." However, I don't have those papers yet.
I have this re: Rhodam Allen. Rhoda (Rhodam) ALLEN b. 1742 MD d. 24 Aug 1820 IL m. Emily Ransom .Second wife Lucinda Overby

Generation No. 1
1. ROBERT 'ALLIN'1 ALLEN was born 1664, and died in USA.
Notes for ROBERT 'ALLIN' ALLEN: Born in Ireland during the recovery stage from the devastating effects of the Cromwellian era. King Charles II had been restored to the throne in 1660, but the religious - political conflicts that had pitted Protestant against Catholic had left an mark on the land and the people of Northen Ireland.
Where the Allins stood in all the religious upheavals, is questionable. Robert Allin's departure in 1690, just on the eve of a Protestant victory, would seem to be a clue, possibly, to his Catholic or Jacobite connection.
Robert traveled to the New World, with a future of freedom for himself and his descendants.
Sailed to America on the vessel " Charles", apprenticed to a cabinetmaker.
notes from " The Allens of Little Egypt"
