Looking for any information regarding Lorenzo and Hiram Allen. Lorenzo was born in Dublin, Ireland and emmigrated to Canada (late 18th Century) where he served as a soldier. He married and had one son, Hiram R. Allen. I am not sure whether Hiram was born in Canada or in the U.S. He was born in 1811 and supposedly raised in Sacketts Harbor, New York. It would have been odd that Hiram was born in Sacketts Harbor, NY of a father who was a soldier in Canada, especially in light of the time frame - the War of 1812. Sacketts Harbor was a major U.S. naval installation. Or perhaps Lorenzo died before his wife gave birth and she moved to the U.S.
Lorenzo must have died between the years 1811 and 1818. We know that he died in Canada, just don't know where. Hiram was born in 1811. Following Lorenzo's death his wife remarried and had two more children, Lawrence and Betsy Burzee. She married Lawrence Burzee, Sr. and ended her years in Lewis County, New York. Lawrence, Jr. was born in 1818.
If anyone has any information pertaining to Lorenzo and Hiram, or any of the other Allen families located in the area, I would very much like to hear from you.
