About forty to fifty years ago, the Morrisburg citizen was arrested and brought to the jail. While the guard was putting him in his cell, he told the guard that he would die if the guard locked the door. Mr. Van Allen had a serious case of claustrophobia, an abnormal fear of small spaces.

    I would like to know if you have any other information on Mike Van Allen? I am doing genealogy searching on my past relatives, the Van Allens. My father, when he was alive, often spoke of this Mike Van Allen. He is somehow related to me. Please email me any information available on his lineage. Thanks so very much. regards…….David Van Allen.
