We are seeking the descendents of ROBERT WILLIAM ALLEN, who was born on 7th April 1861 at "Farm", near Newtownbutler, in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. Robert's parents were James and Mary (nee Gregg) Allen and he had 8 siblings (one of whom was our great-grandfather, John Allen).
Robert emigrated to the USA in 1880. He married a Swedish lady named DORA H BOLIN and they had 11 children:- Lydia W; Harry; William; Catherine M; Buelah; Robert E; Walter J; Harold; Mildred; Verna; and Bertha.Over the years, this family moved states from California to Washington and then to Oregon.Robert was a farmer and he died on 17 March 1954.
Incidentally, Robert Allen's sisters, Mrs Sophie Robinsonand Miss Lydia (Lily) Allen, also emigrated to the USA in 1880 and 1901 respectively.We have traced their movements but have found no leads to Robert's family thus far.We believe (from census records kindly sent to us) that one of Robert's sons - Harold - married a lady named Margaret and they had at least one son, named Dean Allen.
We're sure that there must be some descendents of Robert & Dora Allen living today.If anyone recognises any of the names mentioned above, please do get in touch.It would be much appreciated.Thank you for your time and assistance.
