The first Thomas Allen of Jay, Maine was from Watertown, Mass. Moved to Jay around 1791. His wife's family the Jackson's were descendants of the original proprietors. Thomas and his wife Lucretia are buried in the Bean's Corner cemetery. His original house stood at what is now the corner of Rt 133 and Davis Road (formerly known as Spruce Mt. Road). The old Allen cemetery, where several of his children are buried, is located about 1/2 mile south on the west side of the road. I have spread ashes from both my parents there over the past two years.

There are a lot of Allens but it seems that we all come from maine... I'm not so sure that it is the coincidence that many think. Can you shoot me the ancestry? Id love to research it a bit to see if there is a relation. btw what state are you in now?

Hi William. I have a relative, Frank O. Allen who married Carrie E Goodwin.His brother, Frederick E. Allen married Nellie A. Scott. I am a descendent of this line. Is there any connection between us?

Hi, William - Many thanks for your quick reply!  There is an Allen family in Washington County, Maine, and I may be able to come up with a bit there.  Herschel Allen married Mary Worcester in the 1870-1880 period, I think.  Doubt if it would help you, unless you are trying to pull lines together.  (Sounds like hanging out the wash, doesn't it!)
