Greetings. I am a historian writing a book on the early history of the Cohansey River region in what became Cumberland County, New Jersey. As part of my research, I am trying to identify the places from where these early settlers migrated. I hope to develop a database of the earliest settlers to the region so I can draw some conclusions about the makeup of this late 17th and early 18th society.
I am trying to locate Ebenezer and Mary Allen "of Cohansey," New Jersey. His children were Isaac (who had a son Caleb), Judah, Caleb, Robert, John, and Esther. He died in 1716-17 and probably was a member of the Shiloh 7th Day Baptist Church.My hunch is that he may have migrated from Swansea, MA. Does anyone have Ebenezer's place of birth or the place of birth of his father?
