It has been commonly known among my family that Larkin Allen was a relative of my ancestor, William Allen, who came to Oregon County, MO, (around 1820+/-). Oregon County joins Howell County to the east. We suspected that Larkin & William were brothers (close to same age, came here about same time), but I haven't had ancestry before William. Larkin is buried in the Hatfield Cemetery in Howell County. Do you know the connection?
