I am trying to find information on the family of John ALLEN who was living in Linwood, Kansas in 1909. He may have been preparing to move to or visit Portland in 1909. The following was taken from a postcard written to him from his daughter; Hello Papa, Alice and I have decided not to go to Portland until spring anyway and you can go just the same. Don't feel hard toward us now. I know we won't like it out there this winter.Bye Bye (name unreadable) John ALLEN was born between 1847 and 1850 (probably in Dent County, Missouri). I have information on some of his siblings and ancestors as well as relations today. Anyone with information, please contact me.
