“Hear Ye Hear Ye, George Allen Came to Virginia in 1648”                                  $82.50 postpaid

After some 30 years research in courthouses around the country and contacting many “Allen Cousins”, all descendants of George Allen, I have complied it all in a book.  George had 3 children, William, Elizabeth, and John Allen all born in the 1670’s.  The book contains over 16,000 names of descendants and spouses of these three children, and all are indexed.  Many early records have either been abstracted or printed, as is, in the book.  Most of the descendants and ancestors of Duke and Jesse Allen of Jackson County, TN are listed in the book.  The book contains 837 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches and is hardback bound.  You may purchase from: Robert E. Allen, P.O. Box 123, Bakerton, WV 25410 or Elizabeth Allen Email:
