Hi Raymond J. Mills, Thanks for your message about Philander Allen - apparently you are related to a different Philander Allen than mine...
"My" Philander Allen settled in Cincinnati in 1811. He was born in Cornwall, Connecticut, in 1779. His wife's name was Hannah Foster. She was born in 1782.
The four surviving children were Samuel S., Harriet Allen Townley, Sarah Allen Hilts, and Edward Philander Allen (my line).
Samuel S.Allen, son of Philander and Hannah Allen, was born in Hamilton county in the year 1820. He made his home with his parents until the time of their death. He was married in 1849 to Miss Emeline Riddle, daughter of one of the pioneers. There were born to them seven children: four sons and three daughters. Their names were Mary, Jacob, Charles, Henry, George, Anna, and Cartie (Jacob died at the age of two years).
Do any of these names appear in your family records? I imagine there is a connection somewhere, if we can only find it! Sarah
