Last week I rec'd a response from a fellow Norfolk researcher concerning my ALLEN twister.
Source: Library of Virginia, indices to marriages 1853-1936 or 1940
(my 2nd great grandparents) Michael ALLEN age 25 and Rebecca LAWRENCE age 20 were married Mar 11, 1878 in Norfolk City, VA. (pg 19)
I was able to locate her maiden name as "LAURENCE" born May 12, 1857 in Portsmouth, VA d/o of Herman J. and Mary E. Laurence :)
Their son Robert Michael ALLEN was found married 1909 Norfolk City, VA to Lois MORRISETTE (line 561)
(my great grandparents) Their daughter Nellie Catherine ALLEN married in 1905 George Herman LITTLE in Norfolk City, VA (pg 211)
My surprise was! George Herman LITTLE s/o William W. LITTLE and Sarah Ja. C. ALLEN.
I misunderstood her maiden was probably Jones put it's not. On George LITTLE's birth announcement her name is Sarah Jae C. "ALLEN".But I don't know how or if she's somehow related to Michael ALLEN.??? sigh>
