  • Notes 

    • This account appeared in the Salisbury Advertiser:  The oldest town in Wicomico County was Upper Trappe (now Allen).  It appears on the map about 30 years before Salisbury was founded in 1732.  A Postmaster General, not liking long names for small Post Offices, insisted on abbreviating the name - and it's present cognomen - Allen - was given it in honor of its Postmaster, Joseph S. C. Allen.  This change was made in 1884. [4]
