Ella Sarah Allen

My great-grandmother, Ella Sarah Allen was born 10 Jan 1861 in Georgetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, the fourth child of William Edward Allen (b. 1834 Boughton Island) and Zilpha Ann Head (b. 15 Jan 1831, Ugborough, Devon, England). She left for Boston in 1880 and worked as a domestic for a widower and his family. She married Daniel Taylor, of Wood Islands (the son of John Taylor & Eunice Hume) in Gloucester, 1882. He worked as a ship carpenter. They had 7 children. She died in Gloucester of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1935. I am still looking for a photo of her husband.
