Birth: Feb. 22, 1775
Death: Jan. 19, 1846

Samuel and Lucy Allen's first four children were born at Amsterdam, Montgomery Co., NY. The next nine children were born at Otego, Otsego, Co., NY. Their last child, the thirteenth was born at Fairview Twp., Erie Co., PA.

In 1823, Samuel & Lucy Allen exchanged their farm in Otego, Otsego Co., NY, of two hundred acres with the Holland Land Company, for thirteen hundred acres of wild land in Fairview, Erie Co., PA

The object of the parents in thus exchanging their home of comparative comfort, and enduring the hardships of beginning again in the unbroken forest, was that their large family of thirteen children might be settled around them. At the time of their father's death, all the sons and four of the daughters owned land which was part of the original purchase; and all the children were living within a radius of eight miles of the homestead. Written by descendant Cynthia E. Allen.
