I am looking for some help on one branch of the Allen family. I have reached a brick wall with this person and his family. I do know that familt members have stated that his father was a police Officer in New Orleans at or around the date of his birth.
This is what I have starting with James C. Allen;
From a Cert of Live birth: Allen, James Costella Born: June 11, 1937 Place of Birth: New Orleans Parish: Orleans Fathers last name: Allen Fathers First name: William Fathers middle name: Leon Street Address: 826 Phillip Street, New Orleans, LA. Cith and State of Birth: Camden, New Jersey Age at this Birth: 42 (1895) Mothers maiden Name: Murphy Mothers First Name: Alline City and State of birth: Mississippi Mothers age at birth: 32 (1905) File date: June 16, 1937
All the information I have on the Father, William L. Allenis:

William2 Leon Allen was the son of William1 Leon Allen and Martha Ann Howard. William2moved his family to New Orleans La. before 1936 as he was employed by Sears Robuck and Co. on 201 Barrone St. as of 1936. This William II who married a lady named Aileen Murphy, had two [or more] sons. The first was William III Leon Allen and a son, named James Costella Allen.
Any help or advice would be great. I thank you all for your time in reading this posting. MDW
