Subject: Michael and Joseph Allen of Donegal
Date: Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Seeking information on Michael and Joseph Allen, brothers from Donegal who went to New York separately. Michael arrived in New York some time before 1811 and Joseph some time after 1813. Joseph was born about 1791 and probably spoke French. Michael was older and had a "mercantile business" in New York in 1812.
