Arthur Louis Allen Jr and Bernice Streb Allen

and Family

Arthur Louis Allen

Bernice Amanda Streb Allen

(Uncle Art passed away on October 27, 2009. His obituary and remembrance card is found here.)

A special part of the Cook-Allen history is the family Arthur and Bernice Allen, the brother and sister-in-law of Margaret Allen Cook, (and my God Parents!)

They were both born and raised in Rochester. They married in November of 1945 after Uncle Art returned from duty in the Army Air Corps in World War II. Eventually the couple purchased land near Hilton NY, where they built a house and raised their seven children. The Allens celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1995.

Uncle Art has been instrumental in researching the Allen Family history.

You will find below a Group Chart on the Family and a list of Photographs. Also see information and links found on the Allen Line Page.
