Hi Tim.I am trying to determine who the father was of Mary "Molly" ALLEN reportedly born in Cumberland, RI, in 1763.One possibility is Nehemiah ALLEN.And, I am wondering if this is the Nehemiah ALLEN who was Capt. Nehemiah ALLEN who fought in the Revolutionary War.He is mentioned in the "1777 Military Census of Cumberland, RI" as being Age 60+, and this would probably be the Nehemiah ALLEN probably born in 1715 along the MA/RI border.
On-line records show that this Nehemiah ALLEN I am discussing was married to Abigail WATERMAN in RI around 1745.So far I have seen possible children of Nehemiah ALLEN, b1756, Sarah, b1757, and Mary, b1763.
In your message, you mentioned that you have the full lineage for Nehemiah and Abigail ALLEN, and I was wondering if you wanted to share it.
FYI:Mary ALLEN married Joseph DEXTER (b1764 Smithfield, RI), in 1785 in Cumberland, RI.Soon after their marriage, they moved to Killingly, CT, and raised 9 children there.Their son, Marvin DEXTER, married Mary Ann ALLEN, reportedly the daughter of John and Anna (HAVEN) ALLEN. (I do not yet know which line John ALLEN is from, but he married in Brooklyn, CT, in 1794.)
