Is anyone connected to John W. ALLEN, b. abt 1822 in Kentucky who appears, with wife Eliza and daughter Aurilda in 1850 in Peoria, Illinois. In 1860 and 70 the family, with subsequent children, is in Sioux City, Iowa. Then in 1880 Eliza and Children are in Yolo County California, but John W. remains in Iowa. John gives his occupation as Brick mason at least twice, and one of his sons does, also. Anyone know this family? In the 1880 census Aurilda's (Alrilda) last name is WADE, but she is in her mother's household.
