Hi, Imogene! I hope things are going better for you these days. I thought you might be interested in the following Allen genealogy created by Gene Mergy. It looks as if our Rebecca Allen might be the daughter of Moses Allen and Sarah Whittaker.

As I wrote back to Gene -

' Gene, Although not proven, several coincidences lead me to believe that my Rebecca is probably the daughter of Moses Allen (#15 in your numbering scheme).

1. My Rebecca Allen married Ralph Dildine 1799/1800 in New Jersey. Ralph's family was from Hardwick Twp, Sussex Co, NJ (his father, Sampson Dildine, left a will in Hardwick Twp, Sussex Co, NJ filed in 1777; and Ralph's mother's family, the Hunts, had also been longtime Hunterdon Co and Sussex Co, NJ residents). In your research you show Moses Allen's father as dying in Hardwick Twp, Sussex Co, NJ. So - they were in relatively the same place at the same time.

2. Ralph Dildine's brother, Abram, married Jemima Allen b.21 Oct 1761 in Sussex Co, NJ, daughter of Thomas Allen and Sarah (last name unknown to Dildine researchers). It seems likely that this Jemima is the daughter of your Thomas (#11) and Sarah Opdyke. In fact there is another Dildine/Opdyke connection, Ralph's brother, Richard, married Anna Opdyke around 1800 in NJ.

3. Ralph and Rebecca (Allen) Dildine moved to Crawford Co, PA in 1800 and are included in the 1800 census there. Rebecca is listed as in the 16-26 year old category, so she was born between 1774 and 1784. Moses Allen also moved to Crawford Co, Pa (you show him as dying there), and according to the following excerpt found at Ancestry.com, he also moved to Crawford Co, Pa in 1800.

'NJ Gen. Register Sarah Whittaker b. 1755/60 m. Moses ALLEN of Hardwick abt. 1776. children Jonathan, Wm.,Stephen, Eliphelet, Marym Jeremiah, Sarah, Rebecca, Abigail, Hannah,Phoebe. Sarah Wwhittaker d.1844 Espyville, Pa.

NJ Gen. Reg. Allen, Moses b. 1755 enlisted Sussex Co. Militia at Hardwick Sep. 1776, d. 8-31-1833. Removed 17 8-1800 to Crawford Co.,Pa.'

Let me know what you think.

Susan and Evelyn,

Sarah “grew up on Moses McCollum's property” for the simple reason that her father leased it from him (I suppose). I don't have that in my notes for her, but it makes sense to me.

Moses Allen is described in Genealogies of New Jersey Families as the son of George Allen and ? Collins. See Volume 2, p 278. Ralph Dildine is also discussed in the HUNT family records in GNJF.

The truth is, I don't know that your Rebecca was Moses Allen's daughter, I just think so. The main problem with the theory is that George Allen is shown to be son of William Allen and he the son of Annanias Allen. The geography of the Moses McCollum farm coincides with a “different” Allen family (mine). The main point I suppose, is that I believe these are all branches of the same Allen family, but can't prove it.

Note that Sarah Whitaker had a number of siblings, Phoebe, who married Francis Peppard who became pastor at the Sussex Yellow Frame Church. This Whitaker family is weel established in the Basking Ridge and Mine Mount areas of Somerset county.

If you can establish a link between your Rebecca and the congregation of the Yellow Frame Church, then I will be much more confident of the connection. I will also be very interested to know, because I believe that two of Samuel Allen's sons may have married into the Sussex HUNT family. (To daughters of Thomas Hunt, Ralph Dildine's uncle.) This would further connect the families of the two areas.

I am copying this e-mail to another cousin, Joan Landrum, in the hope that she can provide some clarifying information about one or two of these families. She has a great deal of info on the Whitaker family.

Joan,

I would love help on the Whitaker line - Sarah's siblings and family history would be GREATLY appreciated. I have very little on them so far other than a few bits kindly given by John Allen.

Do you know why you list Rebecca as a daughter of Moses and Sarah Whitaker Allen? I have found a few people all showing Rebecca as Moses/Sarah's daughter, and am trying to compile a list of 'pointers' that have led people to pencil her in. Maybe all these 'pointers' will add up! In my case, I first penciled in Rebecca's parentage based on the following:

Ralph and Rebecca (Allen) Dildine moved to Crawford Co, PA in 1800 and are included in the 1800 census there. Rebecca is listed as in the 16-26 year old category, so she was born between 1774 and 1784. Moses Allen also moved to Crawford Co, Pa, and according to the following excerpt found at Ancestry.com, he also moved to Crawford Co, Pa in 1800. 'NJ Gen. Register Sarah Whittaker b. 1755/60 m.

Allen, Moses b. 1755 enlisted Sussex Co. Militia at Hardwick Sep. 1776, d. 8-31-1833. Removed 17 8-1800 to Crawford Co.,Pa.'

Are there any bible records, pictures of Jonathan Whitaker, Sr's house, or other family documents on the Whitaker line?

Thank you for your help! Best Regards, Susan Dildine Zeni

Everyone,
I would be happy to help on the Whitaker line if
anyone needs it. I also have Rebecca as a daughter
of Moses and Sarah Whitaker Allen, but have no proof.

Jonathan Whitaker, Sr. settled on the land on the Mine
Brook in Somerset Co. probably before 1745. In 1752
he built a house there which still stands today. Just before
his death he sold part of the property to his son Eliphalet
Whitaker, my ancestor. The rest of the property was
inherited by Jonathan Whitaker, Jr. He built his home near
his father's home at what is now the Page House. Only
a portion of this original house remains since it was built
onto and remodeled. I have no idea why Sarah Whitaker
was said to have grown up on Moses McCollum's property
unless, as John said, the property was leased or bought
from him. Our family records do not mention this.

I would be happy to provide Sarah Whitaker's siblings
and a little history of this family if you need it.
Best Wishes,
Joan Whitaker Landrum

Moses Allen and Sarah Whitaker. I was in hopes that you might
have
something more solid than my 'hunch' because for Sarah Whitaker
you

have


“Whitaker, Sarah - female
b. in (grew up on Moses McCollum's property)
father: Whitaker, Jonathan ”

which sounds as if it has a source.

THANK YOU for any help you can give. I have a lot of
information on

the

Dildines and a fair amount on Martha Elizabeth Hunt's line, if
any of
that would be of interest to you.

Best Regards,
Susan Dildine Zeni

Date: Monday, May 13, 2002 10:59PM Subject: Re: Tracking down John Allen…

John, Is the Moses McCollum on whose property Sarah Whitaker grew up John McCollum's son who inherited the family farm? Francis Peppard married Phoebe Whitaker one month after his ordination, in May of 1764. I have that Sarah was born abt 1753, so she would have been 11 at the time of her sister's wedding. From Joan we know that “Phoebe raised his motherless children who had remained with the McCollum family after their mother died.” So it seems conceivable that John's son, Moses, had the family farm when Phoebe married, and possibly Phoebe raised her sister along with her husband's children on Moses McCollum's farm????

THANKS for the help! Sue

Sue,

The McCollum family that the Peppard children stayed with was
probably but not necessarily that of Susan's parents. Her father
John mentioned the younger Francis Peppard, who would have been
about 17 at the time, in his will. John had a number of children
though, and some other relatives in the area, so it could have been
another of the extended family that they stayed with. It appears
that John's son Moses inherited the family farm, so perhaps the
entire group lived together.

Regards,

John

* Question on John Allen * Arthur L. Allen * aallen@hputx.edu * 11/11/2005

Could you provide any earlier information on the Allen genealogy than John Allen ((Alewin) who was born about 1648. My ancestors go through Ananias Allen to Gislem to his son Ananias to his son Wilson to his son Charles Wilson to my grandfather Cecil Calvert to my father Cecil Collins. Thanks for any help. Dr. Art Allen

* Rebecca Allen * Sue Zeni * suezeni@gmail.com * 03/06/2008

Mark, Imogene and I have just been revisiting Rebecca's parentage, and I found the 1810 census from Crawford Co, Shenago Twp which wraps up the issue, as far as I am concerned. On the census page, you can see Moses Allen with his sons and Ralph “Deldine” all right next to each other.
