Greetings Jacinda.... I just found your post, and the wonderful list that it has created.Thank You SO MUCH for doing such a wonderful thing for us 'searchers'. I have only just come across my own "ALLEN" lineage from the Wisconsin and New York areas.... My information is somewhat limited.. but I have this family:
As of the 1850 Wisconsin (Washington Co.) CENSUS
David Allen 50M Farmer b. New York Ann43 F b. England Elizabeth14 F b. Ohio Joseph11 Mb. Wisconsin Margaret9 Fb. Wisconsin James(7?) Mb. Wisconsin Martha A.4 Fb. Wisconsin, Germantown (my GGGrandmother) George2 Mb. Wisconsin
I know that my GGGrandmother,Martha Ann Allen married William Riley Raines (a drummer-boy in the Civil War) - and they had at least one daughter named DELLA PHENE RAINES b. 11-16-1878 in Whitesville MISSOURI.
If there is no connection here.... Thank you for your time, and Good Luck in your own quest. =) Happy Thanksgiving ~! Carolyn
