This is Comfort Allen, brother to Ira and twin brother to Martin. He is my daughter's gg-grandfather. Comfort was in charge
of making and tending the fire which inflated these smoke filled balloons. Comfort made the canvas balloons from strips of
fabric sewn with their own sewing machines. Safety was a prime issue and making and repairing their own balloons and parachutes
insured the best of all possible outcomes.
Comfort ALLEN married Mary Anna LARRED (Laird) of England. Comfort was the son of Horatio and Martha "Patty" Allen
