We had always hear we were related to the Ethan Allen line. That a number of the family migrated to Virginia. I can trace Benjamin and Reuben to old Virginia. We know of a Silvanus in Essex Co. died 1818 his wife Molley d 1843. Jeremiah Allen b 1801 d 1865 in Fredericksburg, VA., He had a Brother William and a sister Fanny.
We think there is a Jeremiah Allen Silvanus's father and we are Speculating that a Silvanus that was in Virgina was his father.
