Daughter of John Baxter Green and Margaret Louisa.
Info from Yogi Allen, her descendant and cousin to many of us:
After Dr. William Stone Allen, first husband, died Sarah Melissa Green Allen took her two living children and moved to live for many years with her parents, John Baxter Green's, at the family home, near Winfield, Iowa. Fred Allen, her son, got a job at a boarding house in downtown Des Moines, IA. The two children finished high school and Fred went to work as a Kaligrapher at the Iowa Sate legislature in Des Moines around the turn of the century. Fred was quite a restless sort, big, strong and very smart, and he jumped a westbound freight train to Cheyenne, WY about 1906.
At some point in time Sarah Melissa Green Allen moved west also and is buried in the same cemetery as her son, Fred Allen, in Ft Collins, CO.. Later in life she married to John Bledsoe, a farmer east of Cheyenne WY. She was known to family as Grandma Bledsoe. NOTE that her gravestone shows BLEDSOE as her last name.
Her daughter, Lillian Allen Hadley, lived in Greeley, CO.
