Jim, I too am a descendant of the Samuel Allen mentioned in your response. I have a book "The Allen Memorial, Descendants of Samuel Allen 1640-1907", by Orrin Peer Allen. Most of the information you had was as stated in this book. However, you offered a link to England, 12 children vs the 7 I have, and that Samuel Allen Sr. was a Deacon...I have Samuel's brother Thomas of Middletown, Ct was a Deacon. I was interested in your sources and any other information you have on the Allen's. I am a 12 generation descendant, my son is the 13th. Love to hear from you, Thanks.
