Thanks for responding. From the information in your posting, however, we seem to be seeking different men. I don't have anything on Allens in RI or who married a DEXTER or WATERMAN. This is the data for the Nehemiah Allen I am researching:
b. 10 Dec 1733, Bridgewater, MA d. 28 Dec 1799, Oakham, MA father: James Allen (of Nathaniel, Samuel, Samuel) mother: Mary Packard (proof needed for wife & children) spouse: ?Abiah Thomas? Children: 1. Lois Allen (b. 10 Apr 1759) 2. Mary Allen (b. 21/22 Sep 1760; m George Leonard 2nd) 3. Abiah Allen (b. 24 Feb 1763) 4. Nehemiah Allen (b. 12 Mar 1765; m ?Molly Bothwell) 5. Susanna Allen (b. 1767; m Luther Conant)
If you find anything to verify the wife or children of this Nehemiah (1733-1799), please let me know.
