My grandmother from Church Hill was an Allen before she married Marvin Fansler in Hawkins county... They are both gone now but I am kin to both the Allen's and the Fansler's in and around Church Hill (Hawkins county), TN.. My mother, Dorothy, was a Fansler before marring my dad, a Meade... and her mother was Effie (Allen) Fansler... my grandfather was Marvin Fansler. Mother was born in what was known as "Poore Valley" (Surgoinsville) in Hawkins county Tennessee... Hope this helps !!!
