Elizabeth Allen

Elizabeth (unknown maiden name) married William Allen, Sr., at unknown date. It was most likely in current Northern Ireland, as it is known today or in Lancaster County, PA where they were settled. It was an established Scots-Irish area.

They had eight known Allen children, exact order unknown:

Elizabeth, (Mrs. Saml Mann)
Sarah, (Jas. Dixon) (see Andrews, Clapp, Stokes, etc.)
Jean/Jane, May 1736 (John Sawyer, Sr.)
Joseph, Sr., abt 1739 below
Samuel (Rebecca Smith), died 1777 below
William, 1740 (Rebecca Green) below
Mary, abt 1747 (John Snodgrass) below

Children, Joseph, Col. William and Mary are buried here and there may be others without headstones.

The Early History of Old Hanover Church by Rev. Thos. H. Robinson, D.D., Published in 1878 by the Historical Society of Dauphin County says she was born in Mar 1705 and died 3 May 1800. It is no longer legible, but perhaps it listed the months of her age at one time.

William Allen, son of William, born Feb 1709, married Elizabeth (surname unknown). Elizabeth was born in Mar 1705 and died on 3 May 1800 and had 7 children born in Hanover (Twp., then Lancaster Co., PA). "Allen of Hanover" in Pennsylvania Genealogies: Chiefly Scotch-Irish and German by Dr. William Henry Egle, Harrisburg, PA, 1896, page 7-14. It only lists 7 children, excluding Joseph.

Elizabeth and her husband William, share a gravestone. I believe it says:

In Memory of
William Allen
Who Departed this
Life Decm 26 1784
Aged 75 Years 10
Month & __ Days

Also his wife Eliza
beth Allen Depart
ed this life May 3

RSA believes Elizabeth was born in Ireland and died in York County, PA and that her maiden name was Aldworth (seek documentation of each, as proof). I also found an undocumented source stating her maiden name was "Aldworth" without any documentation whatsoever.
