Hi Dave, I, too, am trying to find relatives of my branch of the Allen family. My Allen relative is Henry Allen , who emigrated from southern Ireland (born in 1852). He married a Canadian born lady named Charlotte Buttry and they had four children: Charlotte, Marion, (born 1897, my grandmother), Katherine and William. Henry also had a son from a prior marriage named Paul.They settled in Westfield, NY.Henry worked for the Pennsylvania RR as a Freight Agent. He died in approximately 1915.
