    • George is said to have been buried in what was the town of Alfred, but later became the town of West Almond. This would indicate he is buried somewhere in the southeast section of the current town of West Almond. NOTE: In 1872, A.Allen was living in this area of West Almond, as was A.Steward, C.Crandall, H.Steward. This is now known as Stewart Road ('J' shaped road). George is probably buried where A.Allen was living.
    Notes 
    • The book, "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent," vol.2, by Frank J. Doherty, 1993, mentions several Allen families from the Pawling area of Dutchess County, as well as the Chase family. The George Allen Jr. mentioned in the book is believed to be the father of George H., as this George Allen Jr. had a brother Weston, named after their mother's mother, Patience Weston. It's also possible that George H. is the son of Weston, but the book mentions some of his children, so I would tend to believe that George H. is a son of George Jr. that the author knows little about. Never-the-less I am certain George H. Allen, named above, is the grandson of George and Mary(daughter of John and Patience[Weston] Briggs) Allen, orginally of Dartmouth,MA left after 1736 and by February 1744 were living in Pawling,Dutchess Co.,NY. They had at least four children; Weston(b.1732), Anne(b.1734), Elizabeth(b.1736), and George(b.????). This Allen family is a descendants of George Allen(1568-1648) and his wife Catherine, who came from Weymouth,England to Boston,MA arriving 06May1635 and later settling in Sandwich,MA.

    • George H. Allen left Dutchess County about 1792 and moved to Northumberland, Saratoga Co., NY. He removed to Marcellas, Onondaga Co., NY in 1801. His eldest daughter, Bestey is said to have remained in Saratoga County where she had gotten married(she is NOT the Betsey Allen who married Selby Caulkins, of Saratoga County). George's son John and Weston remained in the Onondaga County area, Weston settling in Lysander. The rest of the Allen's eventually all moved to Allegany County between 1823 and 1824/5. George's son Dewitt Clinton is from his second wife Elizabeth Wightman.

    • Land record(Book ZZ, page 336) for his wife Betsey shows that they were still 'of Skaneatles,NY' as of Jun 1833.
