Where have you looked for information, and how did you get back to her?

What are you hoping for?


Valerie Report 1 Apr 2013 22:26

I have looked on Ancestry mostly also family search, but info found in a small death memorial notice.

Which 'family'?

Was she single when she died?


Valerie Report 1 Apr 2013 22:53

The family name is Allen, I would say she was single.
