Henry Allen was my Grandpa and Eva Mae Slaving was my Grandma,on my Mother's side. She passed away in 1987.

My Grandpa died when my Mother was six years old. He called her "Cotton Top." My Mother, Hazel Eileen Allen, told me that he was out working in the garden and accidentally cut his toe with the hoe. He didn't get medical help and died shortly after from gangrene.

My Mother married my dad, Willard George Mayer. They were married over 50 years. She died in 2005 from ovarian cancer.
Who are your parents?

Amy's father Henry Allen B.1841 was a jeweller from Vyse Street who died between 1890 and 1899 (when Amy married her husband Stanley Weston in London - where some of the family were based for a short time).

At the moment i understand Henry's Dad to have been Charles Allen B 1816 and his mum to have been francis but they are appearing to be pretty difficult to keep tabs on...
