My g-g-g-g-g-g-grandfather was John S. Allen who was born in 1812. He might have been born in Orange. Co., New York near Port Jervis. His mohter was Mary Miller and I am trying for over 10 years to find out who his father was. John S. married Margaret Maria Decker who was from Big Flats, New York around 1836. The had a large family consisting of William, John, Clark, Elizabeth,Sarah, Ester, and Caroline. He is suppose to be related to Col. Ethan Allen, of the green mountain boys but I can't seem to make the connection. If anyone has any similar relatives or knows anything about them, please contact me. P.S. He might be related to Jesse Allen who settled in Bradford Co., PA and was a nephew of Ethan Allen.
