In Memory of Anna Laura Walters
Laura / Anna married her first husband William Robert Allen on 6 March 1889. On their marriage record Anna went by Miss Laura Washington. William was Wm ALLEN.
Little is known about William Allen. He was born in Georgetown, MO about 1861. He couldn't read or write. He was a farm hand. Laura and William had a daughter together.
These pieces of papers were found in Mary Allen Lankford's home. It was a note on Anna Laura Walters' life...
I've been trying to find Anna on the 1900 census. I'm having no luck. I want to see if her daughter Mary Allen went by the Walters name. Wondering if there were two Mary Walters.
Staying On The Journey Of Discoveries
On Laura / Anna Walters
My Grandmother Mary ALLENs mother
My mother, Lula LANKFORD's Grandma Anna.
My Great Grandmother Laura / Anna Washington Allen Walters died on 11 Feb 1947.
She was a domestic worker. Note: Anna was listed as Laura in most of the records I have come across.
