Looking for info. on the Hugh Allen living in the Upper Gunpowder Hundred district of Harford Co., Maryland in 1776. He is a member of the Association of The Freemen of Maryland who "pledged themselves to promote and support to the utmost of their power both by arms and commercial restrictions the oppressive measures of their mother country." In other words, they were pledging themselves to the Revolutionary cause against Britain.
A few of his fellow signers from Upper Gunpowder, whose surnames are of particular instance to me, are: Mordecai Amos, James Stewart, John Scarff, James Amos, James Smith, John Guyon (Goyne?), Jesse Jarrett, Edward Coyne (Goyne?), and Abraham Jarrett, Jr.
Who was this Hugh Allen? I can find no reference of him after 1776. Did he die or did he migrate out of Maryland? Any leads welcome.
