George A Allen Death Certificate – My Great Grandfather

Donated by Sheri Church
Donated by Sheri Church 5/14/13

From our records:

MY GG Grandmother Julia Kenny/Kinny
1. She married  George Washington Short sometime between 1861 -1865
2. He served in the Civil War
3. He didn’t return from the war after it was over – the story is he was MIA -we are just finding out that he was wounded and in a hospital
4.  During that time Julia was with a Allen Man – Living together
5. She told Allen man  that if George Washington Short ever returned she would honor her 1st marriage
6. She got pregnant by Allen man – during her pregnancy or shortly after George Short returned
7.  I had Birthdate  as Jan 10th 1867 for George A Allen but death records states it is June 10, 1866 (I have made corrections in my files to June 10th 1866 date – Note from Coni need birth record)
8. I believe George A Allen might not knew who his REAL FATHER WAS OR  the identity of his origin
Each record I have for him states different Fathers
A. Marriage to Lydia Sutliff – states father as John Allen (Sheri Church’s lineage)
B. Marriage to Ada Barber – states father as Delotes Allen (My Lineage)

C. Death record states Ladous Allen

9.  I believe at one point he found out that George Short wasn’t his real father & DROPPED THE SHORT NAME – became known as GEORGE ALLEN –  was a Short in early records (Census and such)
MY GRANDFATHER Alvin Allen once told me We are not who you think we are!
Note from Coni: I am doing a DNA project (See DNA on top tab) to try to narrow down Allen lineage – at this time we are uncertain as to who his father is~ My Father Rex Allen has matched 2 other Allen Men and we are trying to narrow it down~
Any info or help on this is greatly appreciated~

  1. Where in New York was Julia living when she got pregnant with George? If you have the dates of injury and return for Mr. Short, you can look for men named Allen who did not serve during that time who were living in the same area.
