Re: Allen Family

I looked briefly at the local library today at a stack of Miami county books... checked some marriage and cemetery records... but didn't locate any of "your" guys...

I saw in the Ohio Death Certificate Index that Isaac C. Allen died 8/3/1917 in Miami Co, Ohio...

The 1900 says Isaac was married to Mary R., but the Ohio Marriages Index at says that he married Mary H. Mitchell on 12/17/1870 in Shelby Co, Ohio... (that could be a transcription error in one of those two documents... i haven't looked at the census image myself)...

The Ohio Death Index at lists Oscar W. Allen, born abt 1878, died 9/9/1972 in Montgomery Co, Ohio? I looked for an obit, but the reel of microfilm ended on 9/10 and he didn't appear on the 9th or the 10th... so i'll have to look at the 11th thru the 13th next trip... 1878 coincides with his age in the 1920 census record... so it's probably him... hoping if i locate an obit that it will mention his children?

Do you have an obit for John Thomas Allen? I can call the Troy Historical Society library... they have a lot of obits on index cards.... I don't think I ever looked for Allen since it's not a direct line.... Estella's son, Ralph Sherman is my first cousin twice removed... Here's the obit for Estella Allen's husband... (Carrie Replogle is my g-grandmother)

Van Tuyl, John Oliver; age 26y; Troy, Ohio; Died April 5, 1892, Troy, Ohio. Buried in Riverside Cemetery - Troy, Ohio. survivors: his wife, Estella Allen Van Tuyl; and 2 children at home, Ralph and Ethel Mae Van Tuyl; his parents, Henry and Mary Frances Somerville Van Tuyl; several brothers and sisters - Mrs. Carrie Replogle, George Bennett Van Tuyl, Elmer E. Van Tuyl, Mrs. Lettie McCool, Mrs. Lida Kuhlman, Mrs. Anna Dodd, Miss Bertha Van Tuyl, Robert Van Tuyl. John Oliver Van Tuyl...was born Sept, 3, 1865, and died in peace at Troy, Ohio on April 5, 1892. Having been severely injured when a boy of 10 years, he was left with a delicate constitution. When he almost reached manhood, he went West, only to return in 2 yrs. greatly afflicted with malaria and not too well. About one year ago, he had prevailing la grippe, and it greatly reduced his strength, but with courage and devotion to his family, he continued to work until his collapse one month ago. On January 31, 1892, he united with the M.E. Church and the 41th (??) of March, he was baptized by the Rev. V.F. Brown, Pastor of the M.E. Church. (obit: The Buckeye, Thursday, April 14, 1892)

I'll poke around a bit and see what else I can find....
