For information: Some Wallen families in the Missouri/Nebraska area originated from Edward Woollen/Wooller (ca 1585-1659), an adventurer in the Virginia Land Company from England. The name was changed from Woollen to Wollen to Wallen by John Hamilton Wallen (1851 - 1917) and his father Mathias Wollen (1822-1891). Details can be found in "Woollen/Woolen Family Geneology" edited by Edward A. Woolen, Library of Congress Catalog no. 84-072574.
