Since you have several Allen books, I am wondering if you would be willing to do a look-up for me.My great great grandfather, Ashbel or Ashabel Allen, was born @ 1797.He told his children he was born in Vermont, but the sexton records where he is buried say he was born in Oneida Co., NY.In any case, he married Catherine Baldridge, who was born @ 1800.His bio. says they were married in their native state of Vermont.Shortly after their marriage, they went to St. Lawrence Co., NY.They had four children:Matilda S. Allen, b. 1831; Ethan P. Allen, b. 1834; William Wallace Allen (my great grandfather), b. 1837; and Henry Nelson Allen, b. 1839,Matilda was born somewhere in NY.Ethan and William were born in Oneida Co., NY.Henry was born in Chardon, Geauga Co., OH.Ashbel was a blacksmith.In Oneida County, he owned land in Utica, Boonville, and Marshall.He died Sept. 28, 1839 in Akron, OH.He is buried in Glendale Cemetery in Akron.Through the internet, I have found distant cousins who are descended from Ethan and Henry.Between us, we have thoroughly documented this family from Ashbel down to the present.However, we can't find anything on the parents or siblings of Ashbel or his wife, Catherine.If you can find him in one of your books, I would be very appreciative.
