Family notes for Edward ALLEN and Elizabeth

This family illustrates the difficulty in bringing up a family in the 19thC - four children, three died within months, only one reached five years old before dying. And then mother Elizabeth died (of a broken heart?) at just 32 years of age having buried everyone of her children. [Webmaster]
