Lillian, Jedediah Allen (b:18 Dec 1816 d: 12 Jan 1857) was my ggGrandafther. His wife Rebecca Yates Allen was my gggrandmother and I have a photo of her! I am also interested in your Hart connection for another researcher who is a Yates with a missing Hart.
Jim, Thanks for all your work on the Allens. What's your connection? My mother's name was Helen May Rogers and somewhere in Bucks Co. I have an Uncle, Cousin, and by now maybe a second cousin who share your name. Think we're kin? And I have a fairly complete line on the Allens from John and Mary through the current generation. Your research has provided me with additional information about my gGrandfather Wilmer Carol Allen (b:27 Aug. 1856, d: 2 March 1935) and gGrandmother Katherine Rutherford Allen (b:10 April 1862, d:7 Dec. 1928). You have their wedding announcement. I have a photo of the day. I also have photos of Wilmer's children and at least one brother and several sisters. I believe your original request was about a Henry. I believe that Jedediah's father John had a brother Henry but that is exactly where I am in my research. If I can sort out who his brothers were for sure and one of them, or an Uncle, is a fellow named Chambliss or Chambless than I have the family back to Salem New Jersey (not Salem,Mass! though there might be a connection). I look forward to hearing from you. Best Regards,Roger Allen
