Help...researching Timothy Michael ALLEN b. abt 1851 VA-1889 Norfolk City, VA and trying to find substantial parent information or anything so can get myself out of this dead end.
Again I've been to the Virginia archives in hopes of finding reference to my 2nd great grandfather Timothy Michael ALLEN ancestors but keep coming back to the resources of Ethan Alphoneo ALLEN lineage and wondering if there just might be a relationship here.
In the VA State Archives I found a marriage record between Michael ALLEN age 25 and Rebecca LAWRENCE age 20 married Mar 11, 1878 Norfolk City, VA pg19.
Not to side track but I did find Rebecca Jane Lawrence's birth record, b. May 1858 Portsmouth City, VA, d/o Herman J. Laurence b. MA and wife, Mary E. Laurence b. VA but that still leaves me stumped looking for ALLEN answers.
Also found birth and death records mentioning 5 of their 8 children. Found mention of Michael ALLEN's death in Norfolk City, it states he was one of 7 city constables and that Michael was killed in 1889. I have headstone photos at the Forest Lawn Cemetery of Rebecca Lawrence ALLEN surrounded by a few of her children, their spouses and other relatives there.
Noted in Jan 15, 1944 Virginia-Pilot newspaper clipping, obituary of Nellie Allen LITTLE (my great grandmother) it states her parents names are stated the late Timothy M. and Rebecca J. ALLEN
Does anyone here know where I can look up burial records for St Mary's and St Pauls cemeteries?
While ghost hunting at the Ronoake Library I made copies of any ALLEN mentioned that I'd like to pass on to my fellow ALLEN researchers.
