  • Notes 
    • I’m pretty sure that where the photographer was standing when that photo was taken that you linked, was in front of the general store that my grandfather (Craig T. Allen) operated until they left Leavenworth around 1918. I haven’t been to “old town” Leavenworth in over 25 years, but when I was there one time an old guy who lived in a trailer down there remembered my great grandfather W.B. Allen as well as my great grandfather Sam Jenner and showed me around. One of the few remaining buildings he showed me was a wooden building that I remember looking much like what is described in that photo as the warehouse. He said it was part of the Jenner Blacksmith Shop at one time and that he now owned it. He may have been slightly wrong but it looks like he was close. The old guy’s name was Jesse Melton – a name you have no doubt come across in your research. I know I have. Though I think he was a more recent Jesse than the one I see in the old records. My dad and my uncle (both born in 1908) remembered him from when they were kids in Leavenworth. Attached is a photo of my great grandfather William B. Allen’s home in Leavenworth. I can’t tell you what street or lot it was on. When I visited one time as a kid there was nothing left of it except the foundation. I think it got destroyed in the ’37 flood. Jim Allen 2010
