My grandmother, Nancy Hargis Haight had a listing for an Edd Allen in her phone booklet.I do not know if I am related to the Allen line or if they were family friends only, but thought since the Edd is an unusual name you may be interested in the address.
This booklet is dated about 1945--1952 based on my families address in it.
Edd Allen 1010 14th ST San Monica, California
Also listed is a Bill R. Allen, b. Sept. 8, 1892
Since my grandmother was from Tennessee, Kentucky.. Missouri.. I thought possibly I may be even related but I do not know yet for sure. Hope the address is helpful. Kelly
