Would love to correspond with any and all descendants of Winfield Scott ALLEN (?-1921) and his wife, Cassander Loretta (REEVES) (ca 1851-1935). Cassander L. Reeves was our GGG Aunt and we're planning a book about her parents and their children & grandchildren.
Winfield Scott and Cassander Loretta ALLEN were married ca1873 in Burlington, Kane Co., IL. They had the following children and granchildren:
1. Casper W. ALLEN (BEFORE 1 MAR 1874 - ) 1. Viola ALLEN 2. Glenn ALLEN 2. Herman ALLEN (BEFORE 1 MAR 1876 - ) 1. (infant??) ALLEN 3. Rose ALLEN (BEFORE 1 MAR 1878 - ) 1. Mary FRANKLIN 2. Allen FRANKLIN 4. Anna ALLEN (BEFORE 1 MAR 1881 - ) 1. Fred MILLER 1. ?? MILLER 5. Sylvia ALLEN 1. Lois HARAUGHTY 2. Fay HARAUGHTY
Soon after their marriage, W.S. and Cassander ALLEN moved to Galva Twp., McPherson Co., KS where Winfield Scott ALLEN farmed and later became a merchandiser. They and their family appear in both the 1875 and 1885 Kansas Census for that location.
Sometime after this, they moved to the Santa Monica, CA area where W.S. ALLEN died 20 DEC 1921. Cassander Loretta died in Santa Monica, CA on 15 FEB 1935. Our family has some wonderful photos of W.S. and C.L. ALLEN and I’m willing to share all that we have!
Not much is none about their children. Casper W. ALLEN attended the Chicago School of Art and enjoyed a successful career as an artist.
Can anyone connect into this family? If so, please write Greg Reeves (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Julie Burgard (email@example.com). Thanks!
