I spent a disappointing day in Salt Lake at the family history center looking for MY Abner Allen of Sturbridge, MA. (born SOMEWHERE in MA/VT/CT Around 1754)
I found no new clues on my Abner but found some information on another Abner living in Sturbridge at the time and I'm listing that here in case it can help someone else.Then I won't feel my day was a total loss :-)
This Abner was the son of Nehimiah and Mary and he was born in Sturbridge August 22, 1746. November 2, 1776 - Henry Allen born to Abner Mary/Marcy Allen May 9, 1781 -Son Stephen born to Abner and Marcey October 30, 1782- Son Abner Allenborn to Abner and Marcy Marcy Allen, wife to Abner died in Sturbridge July 8, 1802
All of the above is from a VERY long microfilm of scanned images of original records of Sturbridge, MA.I hope it can assist someone.They had other children but this is all I wrote down.I was hoping that this was my Abner and that Marcy had died and he remarried but no such luck.When a realized this wasn't mine, I stopped keeping track but I noticed her death record and added that as well just in case someone needed it.
