Allen, Joel (1755-1825) Allen was born in Southington and worked at first in the nearby town of Plantsville. He moved to Middletown in 170-, where he engraved for silversmiths, principally Samuel Canfield, 1790-1792. G.M. Curtis, in "Early Silver of Connecticut and Its Markers," mentions a daybook in existence, running from 1787 to 1792. Allen was also a brass worker, carpenter, and general-store keeper in Middletown, apparently up to the time of his death.
