I am trying to find the parents of John S.(might be Samuel) Allen. He was born on Nov. 1, 1812 in either Orange Co., New York, or Big Flats New York or Bradford Co., Pa. His mother was named Mary Miller. I do not have his father's name. He married a Margaret Decker (father Garrett and mother Pat). They had 9 children (some named William H. (b1837) Elizabeth, Sarah, John (died in 1866 from wounds received in the Civil War), Clark, Caroline and 3 more). I think his father was related to the famous Ethan Allen as this info has been passed down over the generations. John S. Allen is buried in Elmira, New YOrk. If any one has any info, please contact me. I think he had brothers. He was a farmer and a Mason in the Elmira area from 1870-1900. I think he might be either a grandson or nephew of E. Allen as I think his father fought in the Rev. War.
