child 16 xv. John Godown was born NY 1778. John died December 1860 Montgomery Co, Illinois, at 82 years of age. John died of old age and had an occupation of Wheelwright. The information came from the 1860 Illinois Mortality Sch. My assumption is that the birth place is wrong and should be New Jersey.

In the 1830 census Amwell Hunterdon Co NJ page 316A, there is a John Godown (age 40-50) listed with no other males noted. There is a female age 5-10, a female age 10-15, a female age 30-40 (probably his wife) and a female age 80-90. He and his family are listed right next to Jacob Rake and Eli Smith with Samuel, James and Elisha Rittenhouse just a couple of doors on either side.

child 20 xix. Victoria Godown was born about 1805. She married Ethen Allen Alford. Ethen was born in West Windsor, Hartford Co, CT March 12, 1800. Some other researchers have the birth place as Lake Cayuga , Seneca Co, NY Ethen(1899) was the son of George Alford and Betsy Hulbert. All I have is Victoria Godown m. Ethen Allen Alford and they came from Pittsburg Pa. to Point Pleasant, Mo. 12 Dec. 1825 .This is on the Mississippi River, so they came up from New Orleans by boat. The family passed down the story of him falling as he was getting off the boat and receiving a serious injury that he never got over, even tho he didn't die for some time . Ethen Allen was born Lake Cayuga, Senica Co. NY. 1800 and assume Victoria was b. abt. that time. Ethen Allen's brother George was a justice in New Madrid Co. Mo. , was living in the area for awhile before they arrived . He is listed in all kinds of important records . He went down to Texas from Mo. after the Battle of the Alamo and was Sam Houston's Major General in that battle . His picture is hanging in the Capitol of Texas . I assume Victoria also came from a prominent family , to marry the son of George Alford , first mayor of one of the main towns in Mich. Don't know where they met or married but I certainly would appreciate hearing that she belongs to your family. Catherine clallison@prodigy.net

In the 1840 census a Victoria Alford is recorded in Pemiscounty Township, New Madrid County MO on page 236. She is recorded with 2 males 10-15, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-10, and she is recorded as between 30-40.
