    Notes 
    • From the HISTORY OF ONTARIO COUNTY; compiled by Lewis Cass Aldrich; edited by George S. Conover; 1893;

      William H. Allen, Canandaigua, was born in Bristol, March 7, 1825. The grandfather, Chauncey, was a native of Stratford county, Conn., who came with his family to Ontario county in 1792, locating on land in the town of Bristol. Chauncey married Rhoda Shephard of Connecticut, and they had five sons and two daughters. Howell, the father of William H., was born in Bristol in 1799. He had a common school education and followed farming in Bristol. When his father came to this country, he took up 320 acres, and Howell had the management of this until his father's death, when the property was divided, and his share was his home until he died in 1864. He married Sophia Lewis of Bristol, and they had eight children, five of whom are living: Austin, a coal dealer of Canandaigua, a farmer of Battle Creek, Mich.; Levi, of Wayne county; James, of Cheshire; and William H. The latter was educated in the common schools and Lima Seminary, and took up farming. For a number of winters in his younger days he taught school. His first purchase of a farm was in 1853, when he bought fifty acres in Bristol. He gradually added to this until he had 200 acres, and owned besides 300 acres in other farms. In the fall of 1882 he moved to Canandaigua, and the next year bought ten acres in Bristol street, where he has erected a beautiful residence. Mr. Allen is a Republican and while in Bristol was superintendent of schools and assessor. He married in 1855 Sarah, daughter of Benjamin Gregg of Bristol, and they had two children: Ida, wife of Eugene Simmons of Canandaigua; and Nettie, wife of Alvin Highby of Buffalo. Mrs. Allen died February 17, 1888, and he married second, in November, 1889, Minnie, daughter of William W. Hadley, of Brooklyn, N. Y., and widow of Cyrus Briggs of Honeoye.
