Allie's father, Frederick Hansen, came from Denmark and her mother came from Wales. She was first born as a first generation American in a multicultural family. Her siblings were Arthur (1876) and Grace (1879). Her mother, Elizabeth Bassett Hansen, died when she was nine years old. Her half-siblings (step-mother Mary Jane Wilson) were Edgar Andrew (1885), Celia Bertha (1886), and Bettie Caroline (1889).

In 1896, at age 22, Allie married Charles Alvin Brackenbury in Council Bluffs, Iowa. They chose to raise their family in Lamoni, Iowa, where Charles had a photography studio. The couple had two daughters either still-born or who died within the first year (Eleanor and Dorothy).

Although only 52 when she died, she lived to bury her husband four years earlier. Her daughter, Aliene, died shortly after her. Allie is buried next to her husband and daughters Dorothy, Eleanor, and Aliene Brackenbury Walden.
