Hugh Allen
b. c1748 Ireland
d. c1832 Jefferson Twp, Wayne Co, Indiana
Children:
John b. c1782 Pennsylvania?
Hugh b. 1789 Pennsylvania

The 1790 Census of Union Twp, Fayette Co, PA list Hugh Alle n family... has 5 boys under 16 and 2 females in the househ old.
Fox's 1912 Memoirs of Wayne County, Indiana, p. 637 - "Amo ng the substantial citizens of Wayne County are...the Alle n family, of Hagerstown, the first American ancestor of who m came from Ireland. The son of this early immigrant was H ugh Allen, Sr. who is buried in the Baptist cemetery at Sal em in an unmarked grave."
There are two Hugh Allen families on the 1820 Indiana censu s for Wayne County. One closely fits the known birth date s of the family as supplied by Josinah Mosiman. It appear s Hugh (Jr) and the family moved to Jefferson Twp, Wayne Co , Indiana before the 1820 census and soon after his secon d son, John was born in 1819 in Montgomery Co, Ohio.
There are two Hugh Allen families on the 1830 Indiana censu s for Wayne County. One more closely conforms to the know n birth dates of the children of Hugh (Jr) and contains a m an over 80 years old. The elderly man is likely the High ( Sr) who is buried at Salem cemetery in an unmarked grave . He died in the 1830's

Some well-supported conjectures
Hugh Allen, father of John Allen and Hugh Allen, Sr, fathe r to Hugh Allen Jr are one and the same person. Hugh, hi s father, or both, immigrated from Ireland, likely before t he Revolutionary War. He was born before 1750. He may hav e lived in Montgomery Co, Ohio, but died during the 1830' s in Wayne Co, Indiana, no doubt while living with son Hugh.
