How reliable is "The Essex Antiquarian" Vol 3 Feb 1899
My line in the Book: William 1611 Joseph 1653 Thomas 1689 Thomas 1711 William 1735 William 1758 married Tammy Lane they had George 1786, Nabby Lane 1788, Emily 1790.
The History of the town of Gloucester pg 57.
WIlliam, son of Thomas Allen, jun., born in 1735, was a soldier in the French and Indian wars. He also served, with two sons, in the Revolutionary War. William, one of these sons, received a fatal shot in the arm on the retreat from Long Island. Nathaniel, the other son, left the army....
Is this history correct? William of 1758 died? If so, does anyone know who are the parents of William Allen married to Tammy Lane.
