I am not sure any of the following information will help you, but it might give you clues:

FIRST SETTLEMENT: year 1794 By Oliver Luce
Hartland, VT -
Zernah or Zemah Allen b. about 1750 daughter: Ruth LaMoille, Stowe, VT
"Zernah Allen" '
"Zemah: Luce became Mrs. Allen - lived Mansfield area - one child died
All of this in the above book - see Oliver Luce.

Soucrce: Gaseteer of Lamoille and Orleans Counties,VT
1883 - 1884 Published by H. Child Mary 1887
see pp 128-132

LDS (Latter Day Saints) website:
1860 US Census:
Samuel Allen age 31 b. 1829 VT
lived Chariton, MO (borders with Iowa)
Lived Prairie Township

another Allen:
1860 US Census
Samuel James Allen age 38 b. @ 1822 VT lived Stowe, Lamoille, VT
spouse: Mary A b. @ 1821 VT
in the 1850 Census lived Huntington, Vt

other info:

John Smith Whitehead
b. 2 Mar 1796 Kent, ENGLAND
died 8 Jul 1875 Utica, Oneida, NY
he married Charlotta (sometimes seen as Carlotta and other) LAW
they were married @ 1819 probably England
came to USa @ 1828 >ENG>USA

other info:

Samuel Washington Allen b. 1829 VT
and died 1902 Macon, MO buried in Kellogg Cemetery
married Charlotte Whitehead (or Charlotta?)
married Macon County, MO about 1866 She was born Oneida Co, NY
so you might find the parents of Samuel W. Allen in that location?

1880 US Census: Eagle, Macon, MO

1900 US Census:
father b. VT, mother b. Eng - is this Samuel W. Allen?


Richard Whitehead - parents b. England
1900 Census: married Stazzzie Sears in 1841 in NY

Richard Law Whitehead 1823 Eng died 1901 MO

1850 US census:
living with Elisha Herrick (b. @ 1812 VT)
Samuel Allen age 21 b. @ 1829 VT
Morristown in 1895 had a population of 75
1870 - Samuel not listed in household of Elisha Herrick.

1870 US Census:
S.W. Allen b. @ 1829 age 41 b. VT Living
spouse: Charlotte age 22 b. NY b. @ 1848 (or Charlotta?)
Ten Mile is just north of Macon, Macon, MO

Stowe is not far from Morristown, Lamoille, VT . Morristown is the largest town in that area.

Early Census:

Samuel H. Allen b. @ 1796 VT
Warfield, Lamoille, VT -
1860 Lived Stowe, Lamoille, VT
married Zirmah Allen b. @ 1793 age 67 b. VT
they had daughter Rhoda M. Bl @ 1834 Vt

name: Zirman Allen, Zernah, Zemah Allen ZERNER LUCE ALLEN b. 1791 Hartland, Windsor, VT

see: Moses Luce - Rev War Vet b. 1763 MA died 1853 Stowe, Vt

p. 399 paragraph 2

"Oliver Luce was the next owner, selling to Phineas Pierce,.....
Pierce's Mills
paragraph 3: When Huckens Starrs died, the property was divided among
his heirs. A daughter of his had married SLUMAN ALLEN
and they had a part or all of the saw mill. James Searles...and they are sometimes spoken of in deeds as "Allen's or Searle's Mills"

..."the following year he sold to OLIVER LUCE the saw mill and grist mill, mill yard, dwelling and 4-3/4 acres for $2,00.00. Mr. Luce did not seem to
be properous in his business and after putting tow or more mortgages sold to P. Pierce in 1818."

Known children: Sarah and John

His father was Isaac Allen and mother Sarah French of Norwich, Ct



"Hannah b. 18 Feb 1765 married SLUMAN ALLEN of Chelsea. published 19 Mar 1786.
Most of their life wa spent in Chelsea, but Mr. Allen was in Royalton some of the time while Storrs estate was being settled"

There may be some connection to the Allens in those parts of VT and your Samuel Washington Allen who moved to MO. His parents may have died, or they may have had many children and the first son usually inherited the property. As the VT state filled up, sons and families moved to other newer states.

Good hunting!
