Re: Mary Elizabeth Capen b 1868
Thank you Rich for the information on Allen Capen. The IGI has an Allen W. Capen born1821 in Gainsville, Wyoming, New York, who married Susan Emergancy Jenison on April 12, 1843, in Rushford, Allegany, New York. The family is found in the census of Whiteside, Illinois, in 1880.Both he and "Emeriana" are buried in the Erie Cemetery at Whiteside. Do you think it is possible that he is the Allen Capen who was the spouse of Caroline Persons and they separated? There are many geographical and extended family connections between the Capens and Persons. And who are the parents of Allen?
