My brother in law has a maternal great-grandfather named Gideon Allen who was born in New York City on 6/5/1830 and died on 6/5/1921. He had a wife named Ane and he was in the Fifth NY volunteer regiment during the Civil War. He is going to get me the names of Gideon's parents. I don't know if I posted this correctly (I came upon this site sort of accidently).Does anyone know if this person fits into this family tree somehow? Comments?
