Re: Zebulon Allen & his relationship to Ethan Alle
Hi Robert - I did a bit more sleuthing and have come to this conclusion, but I could still be wrong:

Ebenezer Allen b. 10 Feb 1650 is also listed as born 20 Feb 1648 and died 1725 - don't know where they got that!
of Sandwich, Barnstable, MASS
married Abigail Hill b 1651 of Salem, MASS
His father is probably Ralph Allen and mother second wife ofRalph: Esther Swift -
because: Ebenezer is # 4 of children after Joseph born 1641....
He is probably not the son of James Allena nd Eliz. Partridgewhose father is Samuel Allen of Braintree
because the dates don't blend for Ebenezer's birth.
There is a George Allen of Sandwich whose father was George - son Ebenezer b. 1668 again dates don't blend.
It was shown that Ebenezer Allen b. 10 Feb. 1650 was born Boston, Suffolk, Mass - that could be true and then father Ralph Allen and wife (#2) Esther Swift moved to Barnstable or Sandwich
There was another Ebenezer whose father was
Samuel Allen, but Samuel was born in 1666 in Northampton, MASs and married Mercy Wright - so not the right family.
Ralph Allen is listed as marrying #1 Susannah UNK
and #2 Esther Swift - 19 children listed - son Ebenezer
is listed as marrying Abigail Hilla nd having 10 children.
Most of that was found on www.worldconnect and also the Latter Day Saints sites.
The best site for you is probably:
or go to www.google.com advanced search and type in cape cod genealogy
There are a lot of interesting items on that site - including Allen history, discussion of problems with Allens, etc.
Hope you find your correct ancestors - still searching for my Samuel Allen of Dorchester Company's ancestors.
