Hi Paula- Are you interested in an article in the Maine Sunday Tel. about Allen familiy? If you are in Maine you may have already seen this but thought I'd ask. It contains info on Alton Morgan( age 100) who's great-grandfather was James Allen( b. 1768 in New London, Conn and died at age 99 in 1867 in Canton).I also have found James at age 82 with 3rd wife Salome age 47 in the 1850 census for Canton. There were 9 others listed as living in house- not safe to assume that they were all his children- sometimes married children and spouses lived with parents.
If you are interested I can send this regular mail- e-mail me if you wish- Lynne A. Jones firstname.lastname@example.org
