 The ALLEN family came from Dorchester, England to Massachusetts in 1636. Joseph Allen and his son, Baron, moved from Grafton, New York to Auburn, New York and then to Owego, New York. They came down the North Branch of the Susquehanna on a raft to Terrytown, PA in 1839. There was too much timber there for farming so they went on to New Albany, PA where Joseph put $20 down on 160 acres. He paid the rest in deer and fox hides. Barton returned to Grafton for the rest of the family. They returned in a wagon with all their wordly goods. Barton Allen's home still stands in New Albany, PA. Today it is a machine shop.

 Five of seven Allen brothers enlisted in the Civil War from Albany and proved excellent soldiers. (See "Boys in Blue" by C.F. Heverly, 1898-Page 302) 

 BARTON ALLEN was born in 1801 and died in 1886. He married Zeruah JONES. Zeruah was born in 1803 and died in 1886.
