I'm looking for assistance in the search for parents of Ruth Allen who was born about 1792 (census records indicated her to have been born about 1792 in several records)
The death record of Ichabod Howard indicated that his father was Frederic Howard and the maiden name of his mother was Allen.
The Howard family came from Hebron, Connecticut probably after the Revolutionary War and lived in the following Maine towns: Litchfield, Monmouth, Phillips, Carthage, Perkins Plantation, Weld, Wilton and Farmington, Maine.
By several records, it has been indicated that Ichabod was born in Weld and Wilton, Maine.
The 1850 census in Wilton indicated that Frederick Howard was 49 with Ruth 58 and children: Elizabeth 21, Ichabod 19, Sophrona 17, and Maria 15. It also indicated that all in the household were born in Maine except for Ruth was indicated as being born in Massachusetts.
The 1830 Census indicated that this family was living in Carthage, Maine. So it is highly likely that Ruth Allen was a resident of Carthage or that vacinity prior to her marriage.
