I too am a decendent of the Allen line. My ggreatgrandfather was Abraham Allen born in NJ in 1819, married Mary J. Durkee in 1845. They had 9 children, 5 of whom were born in NY, Lucy b 1846, Albert b 1852, George b 1854, Eugene b 1857 and Mary E. b 1865 (my grandmother) and I have no record of the others. Abraham was a policeman in NYC in 1860. I have been trying desperately to find Abraham's parents and where in NJ he was born. If you have anything that might fit this line I would surely appreciate it.
