I am trying to identify an Elizabeth Allen, born about 1783, died by 1816. Elizabeth married, 25 March 1809, James Shinn (1782-1851) of Upper Freehold, Monmouth County, and had one child, Charles Allen Shinn. Charles was born 4 May 1810 and died 22 March 1834 in either Africa or the Caribbean.
James Shinn remarried in Gloucester County in 1817 to Mary Miller, a Quaker, born in Salem, and had a number of children by her. The family lived in or near New Egypt, owning a residence there until early in the 20th century.
There are a number of Allen families in Monmouth County, including some associated with the Shinns, but I have not been able to find any record of this Elizabeth or any family identified with her. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome - thanks!
