We believe that Allentown was located in Hartford County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Allentown to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Allentown - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Allentown, please Contact Us.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Allentown, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

- Return to Citation

<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Allentown refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Allentown may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
