Does anyone have any information on the parents of Joseph W Allen born in 1804 in New York, possibly Cayuga County. I can find records for him in Wood County, VA (now WV) in the 1820's, then Miller, Dearborn County, IN by 1840, possibly 1833.
He married Elizabeth unknown, probably in Indiana since she reports being born there on several census records. They had 11 children that I know of: Sarah I b 1840, William H b 1841, Charles b 1843, Squire b 1845, George W b 1847, Jonas W b 1849, James M b 1851, Mary A (Fannie) b 1853, Ann E b 1855, Nathaniel b 1857, and James T b 1858.
Joseph and Elizabeth may have died between 1860 and 1870 because the younger children were living with another family at the 1870 census.
