Still searching but with a new address:
Not sure my Allens connect to yours:
Still seeking ancestry of these brothers, Ira Allen, Comfort Allen and Martin Allen in NY. Descendants were in
Genesse Co NY, Batavia.
Son of Comfort is Edward Bostwick Allen aka Bill. est birth 1880-1900.
He was a hot-air balloonist of the "Flying Allens".
He married Lousie Brundage.
I find a few Comfort Allens in NY none seem to match, age-wise. Several with intials of C. Allen in NY census records. BUT the Ira Allen below could be the brother to the Comfort Allen I seek.
In case this is your family, I found a Timothy Allen next door to Ira Allen in census images as such:
1850 pittstown rensaellear co ny
timothy allen age 2?
ira age 32
catherine age 27
Best o luck with the searches!
