Historical Note:

Abner T. Allen (1813-1901) moved from South Warren, Massachusetts to Chagrin Falls, Ohio in November 1838 with his brother Amasa I. Allen (1818?-1906). This was at the time that the railway opened between Worcester, Massachusetts and Springfield, Ohio. In New England, the Allens left behind his parents, Pardon and Ruth Allen, and siblings.

Abner T. Allen married Eunice Shepard (1814-1886) in September 1839. Amasa I. Allen wed Wealthy Holmes (1822?-1893) in 1851. They are considered pioneers of Chagrin Falls.
