I have the Bible of my gggrandfather: Matthew G. Milks who lived in Pittown (now Valley Falls), NY (Renssalaer Co).He married Margaret Allen (b. 28 Sep 1824)
Matthew's sister Emma A Milks married John Wesley Stover.Emma's daughter Laura E Stover did genealogy on the Milks/Stover/Allen families pre-Internet (the HARD way).According to her family tradition states that Margaret is related to Ethan Allen (Green Mountain Boys in VT) but she could never prove it.
I'm trying to follow her lead via the internet (Laura is dec.) and noticed your posting.Is it possible Margaret was married twice?Or are these totally different Margaret Allen?Is there another Margaret Allen in that family line?
Would greatly appreciate your response. Please email me directly.
