George Riddle Allen and Family 1896

George Riddle Allen and Family 1896

Photo taken in Pennsylvania in 1896.

At far left is George Riddle Allen, born 1855 in Slippery Rock Township, near Princeton. Next to him is his wife Miriam Jane "Jenny" Bruce and their daughter Lena A. Allen.

It is possible that the elderly man is "Jenny's" father Hiram Bruce and that the other people are Bruce family members.


Identity of family members

I've done some research on ancestry and agree with you that the old man seated is likely Jenny's father Hiram Bruce. I'm wondering if the lady seated next to him is his sister-in-law Eliza White Bruce, widow of his brother Wilson Bruce and some of her children standing behind her. In the 1880 and 1900 census reports she lived next door to Hiram and had 3 children who were single and lived with her even in 1900 (dau, Louisa, sons George and James). In 1900 Hiram was living with son Joseph who was 42 and single. Just a thought. Check it out.
Wonderful picture! Hope this helps.
