Some on-line trees shows Samuel's parents as Joshua Allen and Mary Crowell; but this is disproved by NEHGR 1971 pp 232-33 "Yelverton Crowell of Yarmouth, Mass." According to cemetery inscriptions from "History of Ancient Windham" the family plot shows their son Samuel died at Coventry, Ct 14 Oct 1718; whereas our Samuel was having children in Lebanon Ct until 1737 thus proving that these are different persons. Many other on-line genealogies show this Samuel Allen marrying Lydia Hastings, dau of John Seaborne Hastings.The children do not match up, so that is incorrect also. Unable to find a birth record for Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts in 1675 as many on-line genealogies show.
