Sylvina Allen was married to Ebenezer Allen. They left Maine for Texas in the 1830's. Ebenezer became the Attorney General of the Republic of Texas and was also Secretary of State for a short while. There is a great deal of information available concerning Ebenezer Allen on-line. Ebenezer and Sylvina Allen were my g-g-g-grandparents, and I am happy to share what I know with those interested in this family.
