My father William JamesAllen b. 1922 passed down the information to his children that we are descendents of Ethan Allen. The U.S. 1880 census reveals that : William S. AllenBorn 2/1827 in PA was a shoemaker. William S. Allen's father was born in NJ and his mother was born in PA, we have no other info on his parents. William S. Allen married Elizabeth Allenborn 1834 in PA.She was a dressmaker. Any other information would be appreciated.
