Hoping to connect with others working on this family group.
William R. Allyn/Allen bn abt 1854 IN s/o Rev James Buck Allyn (NY) & Margaret Jane Fouts (IN)
William had several half siblings, as his mother died young and his father married a 2nd time Mary Thornton.
William had atleast one other 'full' sibiling.A brother listed only as L.S. Allyn bn 1848 (IN) on the 1850 IN census with the same parents .No one seems to have any data on this brother.I believe he may be my ancestor, Lafayett Allen.My Lafayett Allen is living with another family by the 1860 IN census and married young.He states on later census records that his father was born in New York.
Hoping descendants from William R. Allyn/Allen might have found something regarding a brother in his personal things.
