Welcome to Allegany ...
Although we found mention of Allegany during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Allegany was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Allegany was located in Allegany County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Allegany to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Allegany - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Allegany, please Contact Us.
