Thank you for letting me know that the real mane is Van Allen, that makes a real difference. I will keep looking.
I am trying to research the ALLEN family. I was wondering if your book has any information on the John ALLEN family that lived in Ballycraigy (there are a few different ways of spelling it), Larne, County Antrim, Ireland. The family was
John Allen and his wife Mary (I don't know her maiden name), they were married in 1833.
Their children were:
Patrick (Patt), born 1835
Ann, born 1837
Margaret, born 1839
John, born 1841
I am hoping that they are in your book, but they may not be. Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and let me know if they are or not.
I am new to the genealogy searching. As best I can tell we are descendents of Robert Allen. I just emailed the authors cousin and got a reply saying he has this book. Any idea what the ISBN is for it? Thanks Carla
