Charles's Children

Charles and his wife, Lizzie
Charles B. Allen was the brother to my 3x great grandfather, Joseph Allen.  They both were the sons of Joseph Allen (1776 - 1861) and Judith Burnham (1782 - 1848). 

Charles B. Allen, born 15 January 1814 in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, died on 24 April 1900 in Wenham, Massachusetts.  He was a ship carpenter, a major industry in the little town of Essex.  They resided in a part of town known as "Thompson's Island".  On 28 November 1840 in Essex he married Joanne G. Lowe, daughter of Jeremiah Lowe and Lucy Goodhue of Wenham.  She was born in 1819 in Wenham and died 1890.  Four children:
1. Joanna Augusta Allen, born 19 April 1844 in Essex, died 19 April 1846 in Essex.
2. Charles Otis Allen, born 17 November 1847 in Essex, died 23 October 1853 in Essex
3. Christina Augusta Allen, born 11 June 1853 in Essex, died 13 October 1853 in Essex (ten days after her brother, both died of "diarrhea")
4. Charles Lowe Allen, born 28 March 1858, died 1937.  Married to Lizzie May Andrews in  1879.
