I think you will find a LOT of information and can work backwards to
find out if you are connected to Ethan Allen. Many people were named
Obadiah. I have lots of them in my line - but they came from Samuel Allen
of Windsor, CT and not MA. Go back through "children" and you will find
information that way. I found we were not kin to Ethan Allen, as my grandmother always told us, but very, very, distant cousins - like 12 times removed through some ancestors that came in very early and the brothers
married etc - not through my Samuel Allen but his kin folk.
Hope this helps -
Allens are hard to pin down as so many of the names are exactly alike or similar. I checked out Allin, Allan, etc - spelling in the early years was not
Best of hunting!
