Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

Frederick Holloway Allen of Gouldsboro, Maine; m. Laura E. Sargent

Frederick Holloway Allen was born 6 July 1860 at Gouldsboro, Maine, the son of Rufus Henry Allen and his wife Jemima Handy.  

Sea captain Rufus Allen's brigantine was credited with saving the crew of the Canadian vessel SS Queen Victoria, which played a part in Canadian conferederation plans, when it encountered a hurricane off the coast of North Carolina.


In thanks, the captain of the Queen Victoria had his crew rescue the ship's bell, which he then presented to Capt. Allen.  Capt. Allen in turn presented the bell to the town of Gouldsboro.  Click here for a story about the bell.

Frederick married Laura E. Sargent, who was born in 1873, the daughter of Sampson and Annie J. Sargent.
