I am trying to find information on Elizabeth Allen who married Robert Pomeroy in Maniwotoc County, Wisconsin on Aug. 15, 1873.Their marriage is confirmed in the pre-1907 marriage records on the Maniwotoc County site.
In the marriage certificate, Robert was stated as being a resident of Oshkosh, Winnebago County.I am a descendant of Robert's brother Samuel Pomeroy of Little Ridge, Charlotte County, New Brunswick.
I have a very clear tintype of Robert and Elizabeth ogether in a tintype album belonging to Samuel Pomeroy.Sam identifies the pictures as "Robert Pomeroy and his cousin, Miss Allen."In the same book is a tintype of an older and younger lady together, which Sam identifies as "Mrs. Allen (Hamilton) and her daughter."The daughter looks very much like Elizabeth Allen in the other photo and it has always been assumed in our family that Mrs. Allen was a Hamilton before her marriage.(And therefore could be some relation to Robert's mother who was Sara Jane Hamilton (born 1809, died 1882.)
Robert M. Pomeroy was born in Little Ridgeton, Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada in 1844.
He emigrated to Wisconsin at some point as an adult.My great-grandfather Sam always said that the family received a letter from Eliza Allen telling of Robert's death.Sam said that she unfortunately closed the letter by saying "there's only me and the boy now."This told the family that a son had been born to them, but not the name.
The Pomeroys were related to Moses Tufts of Maniwotoc county and it is possible that that is why they got married there, rather than in Winnebago Co.Eliza may have returned to Manitowoc County after Robert's death, if she had family living there.I would like to know the names of Eliza's parents, (who may have also lived in Wisconsin or in New Brunswick) and would also like to find a record of her death, Robert's or some record of their child.
