Harry Walter Allen was adopted by Sherdian and Nellie Calhoun when he was 16 years old. Before that he was adopted by Harry Allen when he was around 6 or seven and this couple named him Harry Allen, we cannot find out his real name. All records were burnt in a fire, he was left on the steps of the Hannibal Orphanage called Home for the Friendless, His adopted mother after about a year took him back to the home, came and got him at Xmas of the same year and took him back again and left. The Calhouns had a son named Eldridge about Harry's age and needed a brother for him, but they never adopted him. He married Ival Lucille Carter, daughter of James Milton and Nora Ellen Carmack Carter. Harry and Ival had 12 children, my mother Doris Allen Herington was the 3rd oldest of the twelve. 2 died young, not making it to 2 years I think...they had 3 boys and 9 girls. Leonard, Darlene, Doris, Rosemary (Pode), Walter, Minnie Bell, Clifford, Leona, Juanita, Robert Lee, Sandra Sue, and Alice Louise. All are dead except My Mom, Doris, sister Rosemary and Juanita. All are in very health, my mom probably better health than her sisters. Harry Walter Allen died very young.(Information from his granddaughter Betty)
