Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 8, 1786
Nottinghamshire, England
Death: Nov. 18, 1862
Erie County
New York, USA

Elizabeth Beardsley and her siblings grew up near the legendary Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire and had many happy childhood memories of playing games about Robin Hood and his Merry Men in the forest. She married Job Allen May 22, 1805 in Selston, Nottinghamshire. In November of 1828, the Allen family made a harrowing journey across the Atlantic to America. They were shipwrecked off the coast of Ireland, and then after resuming the voyage, were once again shipwrecked off the coast of Massachusetts. They lived in Massachusetts for some two years, eventually resettling in Utica, New York. Job was a landscape gardener for some time but eventually worked as an umbrella peddler. He died in 1845 in Utica and is buried there. Elizabeth moved to Buffalo with other members of her family and lived in the home of her daughter Mary Ann Holloway and her husband Isaac.
