I am tracing the family tree as a present for my parents 40th anniversary.
I am a descendant of Samuel Allen, who emigrated with his son Samuel Allen Jr. (1634-1719) in 1648 from England to Windsor Connecticut. Samuel Jr. later settled in Northhamptom MA. Samuel Jr. apparently fathered Joseph Allen (1712-?) at the ripe old age of 78! Joseph married Elizabeth Parsons in 1733. One of their children, Adam Allen (1754-1851) served in the Revolution (Brandywine & Monmouth) then moved to the Salt Licks of Kentucky. He fathered a child (Elijah Allen 1804-?) with a mysterious Miss Kyger in 1804. After the War of 1812 he settled with in Clark Co. Ohio with son Elijah and other Allens, and remarried.
Elijah married Sevelia ?, one child was Jesse Allen (1828-1911) who married Minerva Kelley(1837-?) in 1865. Their daughter Minnie Allen married my paternal great-grandfather Francis Bayliss (1869-1942).
I am sure this is more than you would ever want to know. However, if you can add to any part of this story, I would really appreciate it.
