Mary (Baker) Allen's profile isn't a total loss. It has some sources. But I see there are opportunities to add sources for birth, marriage, and death. It also needs a list of children in the biography. Any additions will be welcome.

Thank you.

Geni.com lists Mary Allen having 19 children, including Lucy Beebe, who was married to my cousin , Lewis Beebe, MD..... a surgeon at Ft Ticonderoga ( she died after less than one yr of marriage and Lewis joined the army to take his mind off of his sorrow). I am related to Ethan and Lucy by blood   as well.
I wouldn't put too much credibility in Geni.com, without verifying sources, but I will keep an eye out for more children.  Thank you.

I added the Barbour collection as a source for Mary's birth in Woodbury, but couldn't find a reference there to either her marriage or her death.  The marriage information seems to come from a TAG article, but the article didn't list sources.  I also did some basic clean-up.

I need some help myself right now.  Maybe helping Ethan's mom will help me.  I'm not up to attempting research, but will add the children to the bio.
