James C Allen (m Hannah Catherine Parlee July 17, 1856)
Born York Co., NB, Can.  Since he was listed on the 1851 Census for Middlesex Co., Canada West, he must have moved to Ontario from New Brunswick before or about 1851.

They then moved to Baysville, McLean Twp., Lot 3 Con. 7, Muskoka District in 1872. They were some of the earliest settlers in the area. Religion: Disciple of Christ.
