Brother to Charles May Allen (1888-1973)
Posted by tonylouispayne (+12) 7 years ago
I am looking for information about Henry Boone Allen (1884-death unknown)brother to the renowned Charles May Allen. Henry's marriage license to my grandmother Martha Mae Hammer was in Montana. Their 7-year-old daughter Ruth Allen was buried in Miles City about 1923. Originally, I had reason to believe Henry was buried in Pringle, SD in 1946. Recently, corresponding with William Hand of Nye, MT, I learned that Henry may have died of influenza ca. 1918. He married my grandmother in 1916. Ruth was born in 1917. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. He brings a colorful thread to my family history. God bless, Tony Payne, Wheaton, IL
