This information was sent to me by Karen Edgerton (Jenell Marie Carlin > John Ira Carlin > Thomas Evis Carlin). You can see the obituary for Ada Allen at the bottom of the Deaths on this page. This information shows how she was related to the Carlin/Carline family. NORA EUPHEMIE7 CARLINE (JAMES EDWARD6, EUGENE IVAN5, URBAIN4 CARLIN, DENNIS3, JOSEPH VINCENT2, JOSEPH VINCENT1 CARLINI, SR.) was born 08 Jun 1904 in Bloody Bayou, Louisiana. She married ERNEST C. ALLEN 23 Aug 1924 in St. Martinville, Louisiana, son of JOSEPH ALLEN and MARTHA STOCKSTILL. He was born 05 Nov 1905, and died 08 May 1985 in Plaquemine, Louisiana. Notes for ERNEST C. ALLEN: Died at his residence in Bayou Sorrel. Just before his death Ernest had been working in his garden, a very large one which he had maintained for a number of years. Ernest or Brother-in-law, what I (Deedy Carline) liked calling him was a native of St. Martin Parish and a resident of Bayou Sorrel. He was retired from Shell Oil Company as a crewboat operator. After retiring he, Nora and family moved into a trailer new "Joe's Store and Filling Station" at Bayou Sorrel. Until a couple years before his death he was still cutting firewood with an ax. Funeral Services for Ernest were held at Wilbert Funeral Home conducted by Rev. Bill Blanchard. He had a half sister Ada Allen married to Leander Curry and 2 half brothers Joseph and Oscar Allen. Also Jima Voris. After Ernest's mother Martha Stockstill died, his father Joseph Allen married Edna Carline sister to Ernest wife Nora who was mother to Ernests step brothers and sisters. Nora never worked outside of her home but remained there raising her 7 children. More About ERNEST C.
