My great-grandfather was Arthur Rueben Alleman (b. 1890 in Vail, IA).His parents were Henry R. Alleman (b. 1860 PA)and Helen Louise "Lena" Elend (Eland)(b. 1869 Dewitt, IA).They were married in 1889 in Denison, IA (Crawford Cty).
Henry's parents, according to marriage documents, were Rudolp(h) Alleman and Sarah Miller.I have been unable to find any information on them and do not know if Henry came out to Iowa on his own or with family.Additionally, I have no information regarding siblings.
Any help you have to offer would be terrific.
Additionally, there was some information in the family that Alleman, Iowa was named after my descendants; however, I don't have any evidence to this.If you do, that would be great information.
