I have inherited an 1860's album of tintypes and carte de visites.The album is inscribed to Permelia by her husband, George W. Allen 1n 1867.
George Washington Allen, born 1822, was the son of Samuel Peirce Allen, born 1799, possibly to John Allen and Abigail Peirce.The album contains photos of George W Allen, and apparently some of his siblings, including his sister Hopey Allen, who married Zalmon Washburn.There are other Allen photos, including ones of Jane (van Dusen) Allen, George W's first wife, and another, possibly of Lorenzo Dow Allen or Clothier Allen, George's brothers. Other Allen photos are also included. There are also photos of Permelia (cook) Allen's sisters and their families.Permelia was apparently the daughter of Nathan and Delilah Cook of Lowville, Columbia, Wisconsin, listed in the 1860 census.
I am hoping to locate descendants that might help identify photos. and/or would be interested in digital copies.
