I am looking for any information on my Great Aunt Amy Lulu Allen, born 1876, in or near Mason City, Cerro Gordo, Iowa.Father was Orville Briggs Allen who was born 1847 in Theresa, Jefferson County, NY.
The family moved to MN and back to the area of Terre Haute, Henderson County, Illinois, (not Indiana) in the 1890s.Lulu, brother Edgar W. and their mother Mary Celeste Ward Allen, moved to Florida about 1900.
Lulu's sisters Jennie, Minnie and Nettie all married and had children.Minnie died during the flu epidemic of 1819. Mary Celeste died in 1934 in Westborough, Massachusetts. It is thought that Edgar (who married Martha, no children that we know of) died in Pensacola, Florida.But nothing is known about Amy Lulu, who often went by Lulu.We do not even know if she ever married or had children.It is thought she might have died in Florida around 1905, but this is purely guesswork on our part.
For information on this line, please feel free to contact me:
