I have also hit a brick wall with my ALLEN line, but there may be a connection between our families.The furthest back I have been able to take my ALLEN line is to Ashabel ALLEN, who was married to Catherine Baldridge.They married in Vermont, then moved to St. Lawrence Co., NY, where they started their family.Their 4 children were Matilda, b. 1831; Ethan, b. 1834; William (my great grandfather), b. 1837; and Henry, b. 1839.In the 1800's, people tended to name their sons after their brothers, so I thought your Henry might be a brother to my Ashabel.Do you know the names of Henry's brothers?
