Phineas Allen was born in Connecticut in 1793. He moved to Fayetteville, Ohio and married Elizabeth Hall in September 1822. They had ten children: John Austin (1824), Catherine Anna (1825), Lucy Ann (1827), William Harrison (1829), Sarah Jane (1831), Martin (1834), Lewis C.(1836), Harvey (1840), Leonidas (1841), and Elizabeth (1845). Phineas is listed in the 1840 Brown County census. In 1845, he was a Justice of the Peace and a teacher, but we find no record of him after that. In the 1850 Brown County census, Elizabeth is listed as head of household. Phineas didn't die until 1877. Does anyone have any record of a Phineas Allen from 1845-1877 that could possibly be the one I'm looking for?
