About Gideon Allen, of Milford

Gideon Allen of Milford, possibly brother of Henry Allen

George and Katherine Allen of Sandwich, MA had a son, Gideon. Henry Allen, their son, moved to Milford in 1645. Although Families of Early Milford, Connecticut does not give parents for Gideon, he named his children "typical" Allen names and the presence of Henry there makes it possible that Gideon was the son of George and Katherine Allen of Sandwich.

Married Sarah Prudden. Their children were;:

  1. George, bpt 31 March 1678 (Milford)
  2. Abigail, bpt 5 Dec 1680 (Milford) "from ye 3rd church of Boston". Died Newtown, CT 17 Dec 1755. Married (1) John Shepard and (2) Daniel Foote of Newtown, CT.
  3. John, born 19 February 1682 (Milford)
  4. Hannah, born 6 Oct 1685 (Milford). Married Zacariah Whitmas as his 3rd wife in 1709.
  5. Sarah, died 8 March 1712. Married John Leete.
  6. Gideon, doctor, married Ann Burr, daughter of Nathaniel of Stamford. (Gives marriage date as 1748 but that does not make sense).
