Advisory on Dr. James Allen

Some sources claim that Dr. James Allen was the son of James Allen and Mary 'Mollie' Hogshead, but there are several records referring to "James Allen, Jr.," which would have been several years too early to have been this James Allen. More research is necessary to prove the parentage of Dr. James Allen.
