I descend from 2 Allen families - (my gr. grandparent's are each ALLEN by birth) - I will separate the two ALLEN lines/pictures.  I have been unable to date to find a common tie between the two families other than through their marriage to each other - William Ed(i)son Allen was the son of Norman & Betsy (Mack) Allen - married Harriet "Hattie" Elizabeth Allen the daughter of Henry C. & Celestia (Slocum) Allen.  

It is thought that Elias' first name might possibly be William although I have never seen him listed in any legal paper nor in the census to that fact.  Any document's I have found alway's gives his name as Elias.  The only source that gives him the first name of William is in the FRINK genealogy.  Also in this genealogy it only gives one child to Elias & Susan, that being a son William - with no further information.

Elias gives his place of birth as Saratoga Co., NY in one census and Mass in another - so it is unknown as to where his birth place is.  He and Susan might have married in Chenango Co., NY.  I might also note that in the town of Taylor, which was included at one time in the town of Solon - there was another Allen family - namely Ichabod "Elias" Allen & his wife Wealthy Bill, it is unknown if this family were of some relation to Elias, perhaps time will tell.   

Elias & Susan (Frink) Allen had these known children: Maria(h) Eliza Allen - who m. George W. Mack, William E. Allen (he is the elderly fellow in the lower right of the picture just below) m. Sarah "Sally" Joseph, A(sel?/Ambrose?) Alanson Allen m. Lydia "Liddy" Bartle(s), Norman Allen (my ancestor, b. 14 Mar. 1824 at Solon, Cortland Co., NY) m. Elizabeth "Betsy" Mack (sis to G.W. above), Rosilla "Ruby" Allen m. Dewitt Clinton Taggart, Alvin Allen (no further information) & Drusilla Melissa Allen who m. Rochester Taggart (bro. to D.C above).

This Allen family were residents of Solon, Cortland Co., NY from at least 1820 - 1848/49ish. when they sold their property in Solon and moved down into Troupsburg Twp., Steuben Co., NY.   It had been passed down that the family were on their way elsewhere - ran out of sledding and stayed in Troupsburg.  Susan had a sister Hannah who was married to Abram Lewis - they were also resident's of Troupsburg.  

Elias & Susan may have other children, as Susan states in the 1865 census that she had given birth to 10 children but we only know of the 7 mentioned below.  Do you know anything of this family - if so write to me.
