I am seeking matches to some Allen relatives I have uncovered in the course of researching my family tree.Admittedly, I have very little information on my Allen ancestors, but I thought I'd pass this along in hopes that someone might recognize an ancestor in common:
JOHN ALLEN No data other than a name.He was married to a woman named Margaret (maiden name unknown, b. 1791 Haltwhistle).They had at least three children: ANN (b. 1837 Bedlington), MARY (b. 1837 Framlington...probably not correct year!); and MARGARET (b. 1831 Netherton, d 1901 Durham).
MARGARET ALLEN The latter Margaret is my great-great grandmother.She married WILLIAM OLIVER in 1850 at Horton Chapel, Woodhorn parish, Northumberland.She had three children by him (Margaret, John and Alice Oliver). Widowed by 1850, she married William Steel in 1868 and by him had four more children (Ellen, Jane, William, and Annie Steel).
