Other marriages:

July 1878 , Parker, Texas
At the Residence of the bride's parents, Thursday morning by Prof. S.E. Barkhead, Mr. A.S. Farr, to Miss Tamar Levinson. The happy couple left immediately after the ceremony for Brownwood, Texas, where they will make their future home, followed by the best wishes of their numerous friends. For our part we cannot do more than wish the wedded pair all the unalloyed happiness and conjugal felicity that usually follows in the wake of the good ship matrimony. May their hearts united be ever as light and their wedded sweetness ever be as sweet as the printers share of the bridal cake and last longer.


Allen was married first to Ada Wheeler, they had a baby who only lived for a year in Iowa, then they divorced in VT. He made his way to Missouri, then to Texas, where he married Tamar Levinson 1858. They lived near Washington Co. for awhile, then moved to Nipomo, CA after 1886. Allen worked as a builder, carpenter, and California land salesman, according to a pamphlet found in his wallet. He left his wife and son and new baby in Nipomo to find work in San Francisco. They moved to Walnut Creek, where he died, November 1891, stranding his family away from their base in Texas. I believe the family lived in Oakland for some time.
