Eighth Generation

201. Nathaniel ALLEN104 was born on 8 June 1822 in Indiana.102 He died on 6 February 1912 at the age of 89 in Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana.

FamilySearch family tree suggests a first marriage, 2 Nov 1845, in Clermont, Ohio, for Nathaniel to Nancy West, b. 6 Feb 1826, Clermont Co, Ohio, dau of Alfred West and Elizabeth Archer. I suspect Nancy died before 1870. There is no such marriage listed in the Ohio marriage database on FamilySearch.
