Claudia A. Field Allen
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 17, 1869
Caldwell County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 12, 1938
Catawba County
North Carolina, USA

Claudia A. (probably Amanda) Field was the first of three children, and only daughter, born to Robert Henry Field (1840-1911, son of Elswick Sherwood Field and Guilianna L. Lindsay) and Amanda Roxanna Bisanar (1847-1925, saughter of Simon Pinkney Bisanar and Rachel Starnes). Her parents moved from Caldwell County to Charlotte sometime in the 1870s. Her father owned a hotel in Charlotte and was later a merchant in the city.

Claudia married John Franklin Allen (1857-1951, son of Willis J. Allen and Harriett Matilda Elliott) circa 1890. I expect that Claudia's father, and her uncle Thomas Elswick Field (1843-1912) of Hickory, were in business with Mr. Allen, in the wholesale drygoods business.

Claudia and Frank had four children: Louise Allen (21 April 1993-20 May 1955), Mary Lindsay Allen (1 Oct. 1894/5-20 March 1982, Mrs. Guy H. May, Winter Park, Fla.), Frank Field Allen (20 Oct. 1896-July 1971, a lawyer, Ft. Worth, TX, m. Inez Clifton Renfro) and Catherine A. Allen (Apr. 1899-?) Frank Allen was a merchant in Hickory.
