I have recently found mention of this Allen family in some records on my Allen family and I am wondering what the link is. My Allen family starts with Ethan Allen born about 1755 in Litchfield, CT. The following text is regarding Barber Allen, the son of Ethan Allen.
"...as soon as he [Barber Allen] had attained sufficient age to look out for himself he, with Amasa and Issachar Allen in the year 1811, became the first three settlers of Pavilion Township [Genesee County, New York]."
We have not been able to find Ethan Allen's ancestry and I'm hoping the link to Amasa and Issachar Allen may help in learning who Ethan's parents were.
