Note 1:William Allen is in the Charlestown, Portage Co, OH 1850 census living with Jonathan Allen & Sally Allen (maiden name Allen).William is 73 years old (b. 1777) in OH, but I believe RI.I think census taker wrote off one line.I believe that he is Sally's father, not Jonathan's.
Note 2:Believe this is Mary K. Allen b. 1804 NY who married Samuel Allen.She died 24 July 1872.Mother of Mercy Ann, Lorinda Cornelia, and Sarah E. Lorinda Cornelia Allen married her second cousin Thomas R. Allen.They died before 1880 leaving 4 children:Lillian (b. 1876 MI) raised by her mother's sister Mercy Ann, Mary Leona (b. 1869 IN) and Wallace (b. 1872 IN) taken in by Uncle Lodwick's wife Hepsebeth (Note 4), and not sure what became of Iona.
Note 3:Believe this is Sarah (Sally) Allen who married Jonathan Allen (brother of Samuel in Note 2).In 1850, she and her husband are living in Charlestown, Portage Co, OH with father William Allen (Note 1) living with them.She was born 20 Apr 1818 NY, died 4 May 1869 and is buried in Prospect Cemetery, Wells Co, IN.Mother of Hiram, Edwin, Henry J., and Mary Louisa Allen.

Allen was born 1806 NY.Wife Hepsebeth was born 1813 NY.Lodwick died before 1870.His wife Hepsebeth took in two of the children of his niece, Lorinda (Note 2).Lodwick and Hepsebeth's children were: Patience (1836 VT), Rachel (1837 VT), Lewis (1838 OH), Lillis (1840 OH), Mary (1842 OH), Thomas (1843 OH), John W. (1849 OH), Jacob J (1851 OH), Henry W (1855 OH)
Am interested in information about William Allen b. 1777.As you can see, many lines of Allens intermarried, a practice for generations in Rhode Island, then New York, Ohio, and Indiana.The names are frequently similar and it is difficult to sort them out.I don't know where this William Allen fits in, but his migration pattern is the same as other Allens who married his descendants.
