Since this post I have found out that Katie Barnes married MILLARD Allen not a Miller and then an Allen. I have also found an obit for a Mildred Allen Ostwalt whom I believe was her daughter. Can anyone provide info on Katie her spouse (John?) Millard Allen or any of the individuals listed below? Any help is greatly appreciated.
