John Frank Allen (1857-1951) married Claudia A. Field (1869-1938) sometime around 1890, probably either in Mecklenburg Co. or Catawba Co., NC. Claudia was a daughter of Robert Henry Field (1840-1911) and Amanda Roxanna Bisanar (1847-1925) of Charlotte, NC, and a granddaughter of Elswick Sherwood Field (1808-1867) and Guilianna Lindsay Field (1807-1885). John Frank and Claudia Field Allen lived in Hickory, Catawba Co., NC, near her paternal uncle Thomas Elswick Field (1843-1912). They had four children: Louise Allen (1893-1955), Mary Allen (born Oct. 1894), Frank Field Allen (born Oct. 1896) and Catherine A. Allen (born Apr. 1899). One of the daughters, either Mary or Catherine, apparently married a man named Guy H. May, and lived in Winter Park, Florida at some point. I am interested in learning more about this family, and have pictures of some of their graves at Elmwood cemetery in Charlotte. Robert Henry Field was brother to my 2nd great grandfather, John Andrew Field (1846-1883). And Claudia Field Allen would have been first cousin to my great grandfather, Ernest Marion Field (1866-1902).
