Ok....I should've quit looking while I thought I was ahead.I just posted to the forum abt questions w/ Samuel Allen...who I thought was Walter's father.
Walter DID come from England, folks!Three of his children were born in England (most likely).Here's what I have & received today from a historian that has been working on this stuff for me for awhile now.He sent me stuff from books, etc...So far I will DEFINITELY go w/ what is on these pages rather than anything in this forum right now.I'm so confused I could pull out my raggy blonde hair (in clumps) Here goes... Walter Allen b. 1601 East Coker, Sommersetshire, England; d. 07/08/1681 Charlestown, Suffolk, MA first married Rebecca (married before 1640 England), then he married Abigail Rogers 11/29/1678. Rebecca was also married to a William Hulbert (Hurburt/Hulbret). You folks still with me? I'm sure alot of you (of course after looking at this forum maybe not) know all abt Walter(occupation, lived, etc...).When Walter died he had land in Watertown, Charlestown, Sudbury & Haverhill.When he went to Watertown he'd been married to Rebecca.I know nothing else abt. this woman! (aawww dont cry...u know we never find a last name for women!Hhhmm...wonder how they did that...I'd love to go into hiding for the next 500 yrs.). Walter married Abigail 11/29/1678. THE CHILDREN OF WALTER & REBECCA: 1. John (b. prob. in England) 2. Daniel (b. prob. in England) 3. Joseph (b. prob. in England) 4. Abigail, b. 10/01/1641 in Newbury 5. Benjamin, b. 04/15/1647 in Newbury. I have tons more info on all these chitlin's. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ hahahhaaaaaaaa wanna know the funny thing....alot of these kids of walter's named their children the same thing...right now i see abigail everywhere!Hope noone is looking for info on her!hahhaaaaaaaaa Almost all had a daughter named Abigail...how funny! Now what I am looking for...WHO WAS WALTER'S PARENTS???? Nowwwwwwwwwwwww....WHO was Walter's father?HELLO??? ANYONE STILL THERE?;O) What I have is Walter's parents as: Samuel Allen, b. 11/11/1567 England, christened 1595 Branton, Devon, England; d. 09/12/1675 (I dunno where?!) married?I dunno who! She was b. abt 1567 England, d. 08/05/1649 Windsor, Hartford, CT.now this part abt. Samuel & this woman is what I just got off of familysearch.com search that I did.The Walter stuff is correct. Who was Walter's father....and if this samuel was his father...who was samuel's father?I've seen 3 fathers listed for this Samuel....which I cannot help but laugh. Some have Reginald, George, and another Samuel......and then for some of these listings I've seen different wives for each of those 3.Pickin' names out of a hat r ya?Tisk tisk...shame on u!!!hehehe or maybe (no offense to those who live there but maybe like the West VA folks...they alllllllllll have the same DNA!...sorry!) My Allen folks descend from (other allens of course ;o)), Olivers, Rice, Mason, etc... I descend from Walter Allen, Moses Allen, Malinda Allen who married Joseph Mason...yes, I skipped (but know them) a few generations...just figuring I'd let ya draw more names out of a hat! hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
