Would you check your database for a Joseph A. ALLEN, b. circa 1806, Maryland?His daughter was named Mary ALDEN ALLEN, b. 28 Feb 1841, Dublin, Wayne Co., IN.
Joseph is my stumbling block, and his other children's names don't provide much of a clue.His wife was Jemima VAN VLEET, b. 1811, Somerset Co., NJ; they were married 1830 in Fayette Co., IN.It doesn't appear that the Alden connection, if any, was on her side.
Thank you very much. Stefani Evans SEvans50@aol.com
