Looking for info on gggrandfather, Samuel Allen. I cannot prove his birthplace or parents. The story I have been told is he was born in New Jersey (1835), had at least a sister. His mother died when he was a young boy (age 8 to 13). He ran away from home at this age and a boats man on the Deleware canal took him in. He ended up in Pennsylvania. He married 1st - Catherine Nicholas approx 1864 - 65. They had 2 children, Mathias and Asher. Catherine died in 1868 and he remarried Margaret Sheetz in 1869 - 70. They had 9 children, Nora, Cora, Warren, Samuel, Emma, Lewis, Sylvester, Harry and John. The Samuel I am looking for served in the Civil War in the Union Army. I would appreciate any information as I have come to a brick wall trying to find info on this Samuel Allen. Thanks
