Alice A Hancock Allen
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 5, 1886
Texas, USA
Death: Feb. 18, 1941
Cass County
Texas, USA

Alice Hancock was the daughter of Leondia Edward 'Edd' Hancock and Dorothea 'Dollie' Harty.

She was married to William A 'Will' Allen at the time of her death, but was previously married to Charles Samuel Sackett.

There is a note on the site: "According to family sources, Charlie Sackett left Alice a few days following the birth of Wesley; before she was able to get out of bed. As a result Alice gave her children her maiden name. Therefore, they are found as Hancock family members rather than Sackett."

However, Alice and Charlie are found together in the 1910 census (Enumeration date 23 Apr 1920, Cass Co, Texas), and Wesley was listed as 1 year old. This questions the family source of Charlie leaving a few days after son Wesley was born. Charlie and Alice divorced in 1913.

Alice is found in the 1920 census, living next door to her parents, and reverted to her maiden name. Her 3 sons were also listed under the Hancock name.

Alice married Will Allen sometime before 1930. Son Wesley is listed in that census under the surname of Allen, but he and his brothers continued using the surname of Hancock.

Alice died from jaw cancer.

The date of birth on her death certificate is Nov 5, 1886. In the 1900 census, her birth date is listed as May 1888, age 12.
