Theodosia Allen had the initials of either F. J. or H. depending upon the Placer Co., California census. On one census her name was transcribed as Theodila. She was the widow of a Mr. Shockey who was born in Indiana. They had five daughters: Lottie b. 1884 NE, Pearl b. 1885 NE, Grace b. 1886 NE, Myrtle b. 1889 NE, and Ima b. 1892 CA.
She did not have an easy life and neither did her daughters. I do not know her husband's name. Was it possibly William?
Theodosia went by the nickname of Docie while a servant in 1900 in Sacramento. Unfortunately she and Mr. Shockey were married after 1880 and he died before 1900, so they do not show up together on any census.
