I am looking for information about IRA PHILBROOK ALLEN, born abt. 1800 in Vermont. He married Susannah Green Brown 1836 in Cooper, Washington, Maine. She was the daughter of Green Brown, one of the original settlers of Meddybemps. Ira and his family lived in Meddybemps.
I have found much information about his descendants, but cannot find anything about him prior to his marriage. I have not found a death date, but know according to census records that he died after 1880, but before 1900. Also, family records state that his father's name was also Ira and that both his parents were born in Vermont.
I have tried to find a Philbrook/ Allen connection as these two families are found throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine; however, have not been able to make such a connection.
Any information or possible leads would be much appreciated as I have been researching this particular ancestor for some time. He is my Third Great Grandfather.
Hi Nancy, Judy here, I'm sorry it doesn't look like we have any connection in the Allen family. But then I have yet to begin on this family. My Allen parents were as follows: Hector Allen and Mary Bullet of New York, the child , (my grandmother), was Florece Mae Allen born: 03 Aug 1885 in North Adams,Mass and died: in Scarborough, Maine ??? Now she was married to Arthur G. Harriman at the time but she had my father in an affair as I understand it while she was still married and my father was the last child of hers. Until my father went to get married he hadn't learned the truth of his last name. And then he became a "Smith"..Which I know nothing about. But soon I'll get going and see what actually comes up.. But good luck to you too. Judy
