Hello: I am a decendant of George Whitefield Allen, (its not Whitehead) son of Reuben and Pearly of Craftsbury Vt.Pearly and her mother Mahitubile (sp) moved from NY to Craftsbury and Pearly married Reuben by the Justice of the Peace.We have no records of Reuben leaving Craftsbury from the time of arrival in 1790, until leaving for Ohio in the 1820's.
When Elijah and Hannah Allen moved to Parishville, NY. Reuben left VT and migrated to Lorain Ohio.George then followed after divorcing his second wife Lydia Wheelock Allen in the early 1850's. Until I found the census record, our end of the family did not know where he and Pearly ended up and were surprised by the births of Hamilton and Edwin. Even more surprised that George Whitefield Allen married again and had three more kids.He left Lydia with 5 children with one under 2 at the time of the divorce.
I am looking for any information about George Whitefield Allen after his arrival, particularly confirmation that he was a Baptist Minister and preached the the New Amherst Baptist Church in Lorain.And prior to another church in the Birmingham community.
