Hi. I thought I'd reply since I've often thought about the same thng. My great-great grandparents named one of their daughters Martha Allis RUTH, and I've come to the same conclusion as you: that Allis is in her case a surname. So in other words, your ancestors Alles middle name is a clue to other lines in your family.
