I am looking for any possible descendants of Georgia Anna "Georgie" Allen, born 1878 in Roper, Washington County, North Carolina and died June 5, 1906 in Norfolk, Virginia. She was buried June 6, 1906 at Elmwood Cemetery in Norfolk, VA. She was the oldest daughter of Sylvester Joseph Allen & Martha Thomas Clayton (who later married Daniel Warren Jett). She is the oldest sister of Sylvester Ruffus Allen (my great, great grandfather), Jesse Thomas "Shorty" Allen, Sr. & Frederick Clarence "Fred" or "Clarence" Allen, Sr., and half-sister of Alice Jane Allen Mitchell, Jessie Allen Hearn, Leisia Allen, George Washington Allen, Sr., Sylvester Joseph "Joe" Allen, Jr. & Dorkus "Ducky" Allen Sankovich.
Georgie married first to James Roland Holland on December 20, 1892 in Berkley, Virginia. They divorced several years later and she remarried to John Ferber on February 5, 1897 in Berkley. They divorced and she remarried again to Charles Edward "Charlie" Powers, son of Cornelius Powers & Serena Creekmore on July 7, 1899 in Portsmouth, Virginia.
I have an elderly cousin (daughter of Jesse Thomas Allen) who says that Aunt Georgie had a couple of children, but she couldn't remember what their names were. So they could be by James Holland, John Ferber or Charlie Powers, not sure.
But if you read this and are related, then please email me. I have years worth of research and photos I'd like to share with relatives who are interested.
