"Orpha Eldora Heath married Dennis Collins Allen at the home of her father in Wyanet, Bureau County, Illinois. She died in Fitzgerald, GA in 1908 of pneumonia. She had gone to Fitzerald to take care of her husband, a contractor who suffered a disastrous accident and was in the hospital and then in a wheel chair. Scaffolding had fallen on him and he had scars for the rest of his life. But he did finally walk ok again - moved from Atlanta, GA where he lived when Orpha died (except he was always traveling to construction sites) to Miami, Dade County, FL where he had orange groves and built the tourist attration called MUSE ISLE (Seminole Indians Museum and Tower). Boats would bring visitors from Miami, up the Miami River to the site. There was also a skating rink, as well as the Museum and Tower." Information from Jean M. Coleman.

On the record at Westview Cemeter, her name is given as Orphie E.
