Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen
Gracie Allen - birth not sure - some say 1902 due to the great fire of San Francisco, CA. Other bios say 26 Jul 1895 (or 1897)born San Francisco, CA.
died 27 Aug 1964 Beverly Hills, CA.
buried Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, CA
sisters: Hazel, Pearl, Bessie - all 4 were part of dance team
called Allen Sisters.
married George Burns (Birnbaum) on 7 Jan 1926 in New York City, NY
I did see a Margaret Darragh
on the 1880 US Census on LDS/Family Search (free site)
b. 1877 age 3
father: Dennis - b. Ireland
location: San Francisco, San Francisco Co, CA
probably her mother
There is probably a lot more about her in biography books
or in connection with George Burns - but I didn't look further.
Am still hoping to find something about my grandmother's sister Rosalie Allen - no one living seems to know anything!
Didn't start genealogy until too late!
