I would like to know if there is ANY information on the below Allen family?  Or any Allen family information on Allen's of Minisink, Orange Co., NY.

Henry J. Allen I believe is my ancestor who married Elizabeth Paddock (dau. of David Paddock).  Family moved from Orange Co., NY to Steuben Co., NY before 1840.  I believe there may be some sort of relationship between Henry J. and Henry Allen (perhaps his father).  Anyone researching or knowing of any sort of information on the elder Henry Allen b. bet. 1770-1780 please contact me or post to this board.  (Haven't located them yet in 1820) Thank you.  Judy Allen Cwiklinski (

This is the same Allen as above mentioned in the query I posted.  Am looking for any descendants of Henry or his brother David Allen of Minisink and other locations.

Note: I believe my Henry J. Allen (possible son) was deceased before June 1, 1849 as he is not located in the Mortality schedule for the 1850 census - nor is he with his wife and children in Bradford, Steuben Co., NY.
