Allen Family
Posted by: Kendal Cross (ID *****6800) Date: February 23, 2007 at 11:02:56

I'm looking for ancestors of my fiance's grandfather. His name was John Thomas Allen, b. January 21, 1909 and d. April 8, 1966 in Troy, Miami Co., Ohio. Married on April 2, 1946 to Thelma Helen Welbaum, b. March 4, 1928 in Troy, d. December 20, 1975 in Troy. They had at least one son named John Howard Allen, b. in 1947. Thelma had another son, Richard, b. in 1959 who is believed to be John Thomas's son but adopted by Thelma's 2nd husband Robert Canan (1920-1992).

Going on the trend that my fiance's family has never been widespread in their residences, I found the following information via census records. Would like confirmation that this is the right family I'm looking for.
