Wow, you have a lot of stuff.

There is a census for 1850 that lists a Henry Allen living in Ferrisburgh VT. He's listed as a laborer living with Joseph and Malissa (Malifsa in hand written script) Baldwin. It gives his age as 17. Another 1850 census lists a Henry Allen born 1835 in Richford Vt., but that's near the Canadian border, far from Ferrisburgh. I found a 3rd living in Barton Orleans VT. again in 1850, none live with a Ruby.

So far I'm leaning towards the laborer living with the Baldwins. The birth age is wrong but could be a mistake or a misrepresentation. Child labor laws were emerging in 1850.

What do you think?
