Mary Brownson Allen. Birth: 1775 Andover Essex County Massachusetts, USA Death: Aug. 28, 1852 Grafton Ontario, Canada

Daughter of Ethan Allen and Mary Bronson/Brownson.[1] After Ethan's death his second wife Frances wrote Mary Ann of his death to prevent her from inheriting any of her fathers 100,000 plus acres of land.

Col James Rogers and Ethan Allen were co-conspirators of the Vermont Negotiations and James and Mary met many times while their fathers were conspiring.

A cousin also wrote me telling me about her grandson, James Harrison Rogers donating Ethan Allen's gun to the River Falls Historical Society claiming his it was handed down from Ethan to his grandmother Mary Ann who asserted Ethan was her father. The Ethan Allen Homestead believes Fanny Allen's lie but this grave and Ethan's grave hold the DNA evidance.

Allen-18684 and Allen-13 do not represent the same person because: We really don't have evidence that Ethan Allen was this Mary Allen's father. It may be so but right now is conjecture based on a family story.

You show Mary Allen marrying Asaph Spencer. His first wife was Mary Woodruff; his second Betsy Roberts (my ancestor). What evidence do you have that he married Mary Allen? Also, Asaph was not born until 1789/1790 - Mary Allen was old enough to have been his mother.
