I saw your post about Silas Dilie Wallen and was wondering if you have found out who his parents are? I saw a tree on the web listing a James Wallen b. 1792 N. J. as his parents. On this tree they also listed James father as William J. Wallen b ca 1770 New Jersey. This William J. Wallen, spouse unknown, but had three children listed above James b. ca 1792, John Wallen ca 1794, and a Catherine Wallen b ca 1799 all born in N. J. I was able to track Catherine Wallen daughter of William J. on the census. She married twice: once to unknown Davenport and 2nd to Isaac Day and they were in Delaware, Ohio. On the 1850 Delaware Cty Ohio Census Catherine was listed with husband and father Wm J. Wallen b. ca 1770. He was 78 years old at this time. I was trying to find out more about John Wallen b. ca 1794, son of William J. I have a 4 greats grandfather John who was born in 1794 and was in Butler County, Ohio as early as 1820. I was hoping to get some documentation linking this John, son of William J., to my John Wallen in Butler County. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
