About Isaac Tidwell Allen

Isaac Tidwell Allen, son of James Dickerson Allen (1804 - 1852) and Sarah Ann Hardy (1804 - 1872), was born 22 April 1830 at Warren, Trumble, Ohio, and died at the age of 80 on 10 January 1912 at Reedville, Oregon; he is buried at West Union Cemetery, Washington, Oregon.

He married Asenath Cecilia Dustin (25 February 1829 Leroy, Gennessee, New York - 28 February 1900 Oregon) on 19 December 1850 in Pottawattamie County, Iowa, a widow with two daughters from her previous marriage. One of the girls, Elizabeth Swan, died in early infancy.

In 1852 Isaac, Asenath, Asenath's daughter Anna, and their son Isaac Alexander, emigrated to Utah with the Isaac M. Stewart Company. They went on to California and eventually settled in Oregon.

Marriage and Children

Asenath Cecelia Dustin (born c.1828 New York) had two daughters with her first husband, Samuel Swan. There is some confusion concerning the children of Isaac and Asenath; the following list has the most accurate birthdates that have been determined:

  1. Isaac Alexander Allen (born 1851 Iowa)
  2. Sarah Allen (born 1853 California)
  3. Truman Scott (born 1855 California)
  4. James Allen (born 1856 California)
  5. George W. Allen (born 1857 California)
  6. Emma Bell Allen (born 1860 California)
  7. Ambersine (born 1860)
  8. Truman Allen (born c.1862 Oregon)
  9. Alice Augusta Allen (born 1864 Oregon)
  10. Eliza Allen (born c.1870 Oregon)

Notes

  • Although some sources list Isaac Tidwell Allen's date of birth as 22 April 1830, the 1831 date used in this profile is considered to be accurate
  • Although some sources list Isaac Tidwell Allen's date of death as as 17January 1912, the 10 January 1912 date used in this profile is considered to be accurate
  • It is unknown if there were truly two sons named Truman; it's possible that one died early and the name was re-used, or possibly there was only one Truman and some records list an incorrect birthdate. Further research is needed.
