Still looking for parents to these three brothers who were in Genesee Co, NY; perhaps Livingston Co, NY before that and eventually will lead back to Vermont, specifically the family of Ethan Allen. Comfort is my line. He and his brothers lived in Genesse Co, NY and brother, Ira began the interest in hot-air ballooning from his experiences in the Civil War. The brothers went on form hot-air ballooing as a living, performing nationwide as the "Flying Allens", with the most recent member of the family having a hot-air ballooning business in PA. Captain Eddie Allen,of Batavia NY descendant of Comfort Allen was the best known of recent time. I think this family ties in with Amasa Allen possibly.
Anyone having info please contact me..I'm looking for parents of Comfort, Ira and Martin. VT to NY; born circa 1840 - 1860.
Many thanks Debbie Wood firstname.lastname@example.org circa
