One of of at least seven children, Louise was born in Scranton, PA to Orrin j Brundage and Mary Myer.
Louise was an inspiration to me. Wife, mother, daughter, she handled all with love and grace. She had the sweetest smile. She and Eddie raised a wonderful family and managed to maintain their family daredevil hot air ballooning act as young parents. Their children performed various stunts while hanging from the balloons and they traveled all across the nations with their specialty act "The Flying Allens".
Louise's husband "Capt Eddie" was the grandfather of old fashioned smoke ballooning. Lousie and daughters would sew the fabric of the ballons; then the boys and girls would perform. I know that Louise was the genius behind the act. In the words of her husband, "What a way to make a living".
