About Allen Foster

IGI Individual Record (www.familysearch.org) for Allen Foster. The date of death matches that inscribed on Allen's grave in the "Old Foster Cemetery" in Lewis Run, McKean, Pa. His death year of 1855 is too early for any Bradford, Pa newspapers. A check was made of the Smethport newspapers, none covered the date on or around June 1, 1855. Please note that the IGI Individual Record lists Allen's place of death as "McKean, Erie, Pennyslvania." To clarify, this means his place of death occurred in the town/city of McKean, which is in Erie county, Pennsylvania (this on a map is located at or near the junction of Interstate 79 and Interstate 90 near Erie Pennsylvania west of Lafayette, McKean, Pa and Lewis Run, Pa) . This is confusing because there is also a county of McKean, in which the city of Bradford is located. The contact information for Erie county Pa Vital records. As you can see the earliest birth, death records recorded available is 1893. Bible records or other historical data maybe an alternative to certified birth and death records complied by the DAR for which Allen Foster's descendency file is kept being the son of Private William Foster of the American Revolution and his invalid pension received in Onondaga county New York. Allen Foster being a Tuna Valley pioneer arriving via covered wagon from Long Island which may give sway to the return of William Foster to the Southampton Long Island region because of Patience Clark his wife's death. This may also have been an easier way because of Indian territory and safe passage by way of the southern tier to Scio and Port Alleghany NY to the Tungunnaut River valley to Lewis Run, Pa.
