Howard Wallen
Home in 1920: Richmond, Wise, Virginia
Age: 5 years
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1915
Birthplace: Virginia
Relation to Head of House: Son
Father's Name: W P
Father's Birth Place: Tennessee
Mother's Name: Alice
Mother's Birth Place: Virginia
Marital Status: Single
Race: White
Sex: Male

Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
W P Wallen 35
Alice Wallen 34
Elvie Wallen 9
Edith Wallen 7
Howard Wallen 5
Ruby Wallen 3
Ora Wallen 1
Harrison Wallen 25

By 1930, W. P. is gone from the household, and Alice and the kids were in Big Gap, Wise County, TN.

I suspect that the Harrison Wallen is a brother, and that your W. P. is Willie Wallen, son of John Wallen, born 1854. and Elizabeth Fleenor. John Wallen was a son of William J. "Big Sandy" Wallen and Jane Banks.

If these are your Wallens, there is a lot of information available about them.

Hope this helps.
