Am seeking information on Russel Allen prior to 1850. By that time he appears in the Federal Census for the Town of Wethersfield, Wyoming County, NY with his wife Cornelia and a son by the name of Frank Allen born December 17, 1845. Russel was born about October 1802 and died April 14,1870. I have been told that both Russel and Cornelia were born in Troy, Rensselaer Co. NY but that is hearsay only. Thank you.
