Facts and Events
Name[1] Samuel Allen
Gender Male
Birth? ABT 1686 Based on Date of Marr
Marriage 20 Aug 1707 Westerly, Washington, Rhode Island, United Statesto Catherine Morehouse
Death[1] 22 FEB 1743/44 Lebanon, New London, Connecticut, USA
Other[2]  Refuted parents?: Joshua Allen and Mary Crowell 

Some on-line trees shows Samuel's parents as Joshua Allen and Mary Crowell. But this is disproved by NEHGR 1971 P232-233-"Yelverton Crowell of Yarmouth, Mass." According to cemetery inscriptions from "History of Ancient Windham" the family plot shows their son Samuel died at Coventy, Ct 14 Oct 1718; whereas our Samuel was having children in Lebanon Ct until 1729 thus proving that these are different persons.

Many other on-line genealogies show this Samuel Allen marrying Lydia Hastings, dau of John Seaborne Hastings. But the children do not match up. So that is incorrect also.

I am unable to find a birth record for Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts in 1675 as many on-line genealogies show. So I do not have a verified place of birth or date of birth.
