I am searching for any information on a Burr Allen who was born about 1825/26 in CT. He was married to Elvira ? (b. ca. 1833) and had at least the following children: Louisa (b. abt. 1852) and Henry B. (5 July 1857-26 Jan. 1916). In 1860 Burr and Elvira were residing in Elizabeth, New Jersey and his occupation was boatman. I found the following on the 1850 census of Westport, CT.

In 1900 Burr's son Henry Allen (age 43) was living in Jersey City, NJ with his wife Anna Jane Howell (age 39, b. NY). They had the following children: Mary, Harry, Clarence, Bessie, and George.
