This Gideon Allen (b. 25 Feb 1718/9, Dartmouth, Bristol Co., MA) married Elizabeth Hoxie 25 Nov 1742 in Sandwich, Barnstable Co., MA.
I am very interested in their son, Samuel Allen, born 5 Jun 1745 (where?), because I think he is the father of my ancestress Rebecca Allen born 28 Dec 1777 (where?).Although I think Samuel was "of Dartmouth" when he married the first time in 1771, I believe they returned to Sandwich.My Rebecca Allen married Stephen Holway there 4 Oct 1797.They were Quakers and are buried in the Quaker Burying Ground in Sandwich.
Where did you obtain the birthdate for Samuel's wife Rebecca?Do you know her family?What sources have you found on this family?
