I have information regarding Amasa Allen IInd [d1826] and his wife Nanacy Lord Allen and their family - he was named as Executor to the estate [probate] of Lena Allen of Lebanon, Madison Co., NY in 1809.Virkus (1936) stated Amasa married Nancy Lord, and was the son of "Sina Allen."["Sina" is error on part of Virkus in 1936 transcription of the original document]. There was an error in translating the old handwriting as the "S" looks like a "L" but is actually a "S" in the original document.
Nancy Lord Allen had a sister Alice Lord who also married an Amasa Allen [1750-1820] and they had a son Amasa Jr. [1781-1834] who married Lucinda Loomis; this is my lineage. All these Allen's [Amasa d.1826, Amasa 1750-1820, and Amasa Jr., 1781-1834, and Amasa Loomis Allen, b.1803] were residing at Covington, Genesee Co., New York in 1819 [both Amasa IInd and Amasa Jr. purchased land on Lot 13 in the 40M Tract in 1819, at Genesee County settlement at Covington, Union Corners: area partially enveloped by the Le Roy Reservoir at present]; the two landowner Allen's are also in the 1820 Census report.I have extensive research on these branches of the Allen family.
The Capt Eddie Allen family were acquainted with my Great Grand Uncle and his wife and their daughter, whom I knew as "Aunt Thelma."They owned and operated the Batavia "Home Dairy Co." Cafeteria, Bakery and full-line Delicatessen from 1921-mid 1940s when they sold the business - not the property - to an other gentleman after Aunt Thelma's father died.I have a letter in which Aunt Thelma describes the funeral of a young member of the Capt Eddie Allen family, years ago, in Batavia, as the young persons funeral procession passed near their home.She "believed" she had heard that both Allen families [Capt Eddie and ours] were related, but it "went back many years."She drove me to a bend in the road near an intersection, near Union Corners, Genesee Co., New York in 1981 and told me that it was the location where the earliest members of our Allen family settled, and that there were several members of the Allen family who settled there - she said her father told her the story years before.It was not the site where they purchased their land, but rather the site they settled on about 1810/1811.I have photos.Mark Allen.If you are interested in further information - contact me via my Email at:markEallen63@yahoo.com
