Information about Robert Allen (Jr.):

This Robert Allen served in the 3rd regiment, Virginia, 1777 - 1778, under Captain David Arrell and Lieut. Col. William Heath. However, the DAR does not recognize his service as he was listed as not present at the final muster record of the Augusta County Court Martial Minutes book even though he is shown attending muster dozens of times prior to that last muster date (which by the way was 25 October 1783 - seven weeks after the signing of the Treaty of Paris).  Family tradition is that he died from wounds received in the war.

Provided Supplies for Troops as noted on Page 18 of Augusta County Virginia Court of Claims, 1782-1785, by Katherine Gentry Bushman.
