|Birth: ||1800, USA|
As stated in Francis Marion Agnew's bio, Allen married Eleanor (Sutton) in 1824 in Hamilton Co., OH. In the census reports, Allen was listed as a Woolen Manufacturer. The Allen Agnew family was found in census reports for Symmes, Hamilton Co., OH through 1850; in 1860 he was living with his son, Archibald Burns Agnew in IL. He is found in the Evergreen (Makanda) Cemetery listing in which it states Allen died in 1866.
I include the bio of Francis Marion Agnew from his 50th wedding anniversary article to establish that Allen was the father of Francis Marion. there is no indication that they were related to the Agnew family in Monroe or Mason County, Illinois.
