Classification: Query
Surnames: Allen, Woodard

I'm not related so no photos, etc.

Simon Allen
Born: abt. 1796, New York
Died: Before 1835, Little Falls, Herkimer, NY
Source: Lindstrom-Allen-June family tree,

However no sources provided so the above will have to be proved.

Harvey James Allen, b. 1816, Herkimer, NY
Married: Mary Ann Woodard, b. 1819 Herkimer, NY
Source: Our Family Tree,

Again no sources but seems probable. You should verify by finding Simon's probate records and Harvey James and Mary Ann's married record.

I assume you found Mary Ann and James information on

Unfortunately her obituary doesn't mention her parents. She died before death certificates were being used in Iowa.

Dickinson County was using death records starting in 1880, however, they probably aren't all inclusive that early in time. I'd contact the Dicksinson County Recorder's office and ask.

Dickinson County newspapers are online, for free at 1870-2010.

If you don't find his death notice there, I'd contact the Spencer Public Library, and ask about a copy of James newspaper death notice. His parents names might be in it. Successful Searching!
