  • Notes 
    • Her tombstone dates, transcribed by Joan Van Syckle, are 3 Jan 1857 and 15 Feb 1934. Her stone gives her name as "Tishia" Freeman. Some descendants report that she was also called "Tisha."

      According to a family group record prepared by Joan Van Syckle, "Teresa's date of birth according to [the] 1900 census is Aug 1863." The same FGR gives Teresa's parents as "Joseph Allen (? 1/1/1838 - 5/24/1910)" and "Patricia Barnes". But Teresa Allen's sister Rachel's death certificate on Ancestry.com shows her parents as John Allen and Nancy Barnes, both born in Tennessee.

      Posted by user "Dolores1630" to Ancestry.com:

      "Teresa was variously known as, Tasia, Tacia, and Tacey on census records. My father, Teresa's grandson, told me in the late 1970s that he remembered his grandmother being called 'Tasia' or 'Stasia' and wondered if this was a nickname for 'Anastasia' which is my oldest daughter's name. From her death records and her tombstone it appears her give name was Teresa.

      "My father also remembered that Teresa was known for her herbal remedies and was always growing and preparing herbs. She would always quote from the Old Testament and loved to quote the verses about the revenge and punishment of God. 'Hellfire and brimstone' verses he called them. He said he was none too pleased with this as a child as it frightened him a bit."
