|Death: ||Mar. 24, 1817|
William Henry Egle's Pennsylvania Genealogies: Chiefly Scotch-Irish and German, 1886, page 9 has data on this family.
He is the grandson of William and Sarah Allen and father of Joseph Allen, III (and his wife) and others are also buried here.
Historical Sketch of Old Hanover Church by Rev. Thomas H. Robinson, D.D. (1828-1906) With a Notice of the Church at Conewago, by A. Boyd Hamilton, Harrisburg, PA, Dauphin County Historical Society, 1878, page 39: "*Allen, Joseph," died 1817. It notes (*) his death was "collated from other sources" and not from a tombstone reading, page 39. So he does not have an existing gravestone.
I suspect this is the Joseph Allen, Soldier and Patriot listed on the SAR Veterans of the Revolutionary War plaque at the gate entrance.
