Daniel resided successively in Charlestown, Watertown, Lancaster, and Watertown.
Daniel ALLEN and Mary WILDER were married.6 Mary WILDER was born (date unknown).
The connection of Mary to a father as Rev. John Sherman seems to an error in the book re the early settlers of Watertown seems to be an error.
Early Families of New England, database at AmericanAncestors.og has a 7-page article on Rev. John Sherman.
There was also in Watertown, a Capt John Sherman - noted in the Great Migration series - he also had a daughter Mary, b. at Watertown, 21 Feb 1640, married Timothy Hawkins, 18 Jan 1666/7.
According to the book, "The Early Records of Lancaster, Massachusetts. 1643-1725," page 298 (see https://archive.org/details/earlyrecordslan00masgoog), Mary Wilder married Daniel Allen, a cooper in Charlestown, "and upon a gift of forty acres of land from her father, they came to Lancaster, bringing children born in Charlestown and Watertown, but after some years' residence ...returned to Watertown." I am not sure this statement about bringing younger children with her is correct - from what I can tell, the 3 children born before moving to Lancaster all died before the move.
Regardless, while in Lancaster their early records show the birth of three additional children:
Lancaster was the site of a smaller Indian attack in 1675 when 8 people were killed, and a much larger attack in February, 1676, when upwards of 55 people were slain or captured. The city was abandoned, burned to the ground, and uninhabited for 3 about years. It looks like Mary and Daniel left town before these attacks, not to return. Daniel was gifted land from his father in 1673 in Watertown, and they moved then or a little before to Watertown.
After their removal to Watertown, there was a death date recorded for Daniel in Lancaster records:
Daniel ALLEN and Mary WILDER had the following children:
