Among the collection of my great-grand-uncle Uriel's photos and scraps of research, I have found several pictures of people from the 1800s. Some have names written on the back, others have no indicating marks at all. I will begin by posting those photos that Uriel had identified.
This is a picture of David Brent ALLEN who was born 28 June 1820 in Virginia. David was about 9 years old when his father Edward C. ALLEN died. His mother was Julia A. BRENT, and his siblings names were James E., Elizabeth C., Emeline H., Charles P., William N., Benjamin, Mary C., and Martha A. ALLEN.
David B. Allen lived in Granville, North Carolina for most of his life with his wife Mary Ann MONTAGUE. Their marriage bond was made 17 Dec 1844, and the ALLEN/CAWTHORN marriage record shows they were married 24 Dec 1844; he would have been 24 years old. In the 1850 census David is listed as a farmer but by 1860 he is listed as a carpenter.
David B. Allen died 31 Jan 1862.
