A relative recently passed away, and while sorting through her things, we came across a beautiful Allen family bible from 1866, containing family pictures.William Carr Allen b. August 11, 1869 (Portage City, WI) made the last entry. I cannot find anything about this particular William Carr Allen, and would like to locate his decendants.
The bible records the December 25, 1867 Marriage of:
William Clark Allen (b. Nov. 15, 1845 Newcastle Canada West) to Sarah Temperance Carr (b. May 13, 1849, Belfast, Highland County, Ohio).The marriage took place in Columbia County Wisconsin.
William Clark Allen's parents were married November 30, 1823 in Darlington Canada, and were: Benjamin M. Allen (died 1865 Portage, Columbia County, WI), and Clarissa Beech (died 1865 Portage, Columbia County, WI).
Sarah's parents were married August 11, 1836 in Ohio, and were: Samuel M. Carr and Sarah A. Shannon.
William Clark Allen and Sarah Temperance Carr had two children before Sarah died of hemorrage of the lungs on April 8, 1875 at age 25.Their children were:
William Carr Allen:b. August 11, 1869 Portage, WI Hugh Neil Talbot Allen:b. April 13, 1873; d. May 5, 1928 buried in Minneapolis, MN.
After Sarah died, William Clark Allen married Edna Jean Jewett on January 16, 1877 in Woodstock, IL and 2 more sons were born:Walter Jewett Allen b. November 13, 1879, and Harry Horton Allen b. 10/14/1891.
Do you have any information about this line of Allen's? I am particularly interested in finding the decendants of William Carr Allen, or Hugh Neil Talbot Allen.Thanks!
