We're of the same family all right!While I don't have anything on Salamon, I do have lots on the rest of the family that you mentioned.I can give you a quick overview here and would be glad to send you via snail mail copies of what I have.All my material comes from the soft bound book "Wagons West" which was compiled by Peggie Allen Lowman of Washington State.She put together an impressive genealogy the old way -- before computers, genealogy.com, USGenWeb, etc.

Sylvanus is my ancestor.He was born probably in Gowanda, NY in 1828.In 1849, he married Virtue Waite.They had seven children.The Allen family, including Asahel and Hannah, left NY for the Midwest.He arrived in Minnesota about 1856/7 and settled near Huston.Virtue died in 1866 as the result of a wagon accident along the trail and is buried somewhere near Decorah, Iowa.Sylvanus was drafted into the Union army in 1864.He served as a private in Co. A, 4th Regiment, Minnesota Infantry.He was discharged in July 1865.His diary is included in the "Wagons West" story.
Sylvenus married Euceba Arms, b. 5/25/1830 in 1866.
Ida Emma, b. 11/19/1867, d. 11/13/1862 (MY GGRANDMOTHER)
Luther Sylvenus, b. 12/17/1870, d. 8/10/1908
Lewis died while an infant.Sylvenus died in 1876.Euceba died in 11/1907.Luther died in 8/1908.They are all buried at the Loon Lake Cemetery.
Euceba was considered to be quite wealthy.To the marriage she brought 1 cow, 1 yearling heifer, 1 heifer calf, 2 steer calves, cash in the amount of $208.30.Sylvenus became the designated leader of a group of families that settled in the area.He established a church and became their minister.He later founded the Baptist Church at Loon Lake.
There's so much more here including a diary my ggrandmother Ida kept that is partially reprinted.There is also quite a sweet letter from Sylvenus to Euceba asking her to come to Minnesota to marry him after the death of Virtue."If you would like a beautiful country to make your home come out here and you will find it."
I would love a copy of your old letter.Is Virtue your oldest known relative and are you descended from one of her and Sylvanus' children?
