Tombstone Tuesday - November 15, 2016 - Allen Greig Daly

Allen Greig Daly was the son of John Daly and Mary McIntosh born in Clio Michigan in Genesee County. He was born Sep 7, 1895. He was the third of nine children born to John and Mary; William (1892), Stephan (1894), Allen(1896), Sophronia(1897),Sophia(1899),Elizabeth(1901), John C.(1903), Clayton(1904), Francis(1905), Gordon(1907). John and Mary lost two children according to the 1910 Federal Census. Mary states that she has had 12 births and 10 children are living.

Allen Greig Daly married Edith Ann Terry on October 26, 1926 in Flint Michigan. They had two children; Dale (1928), Darla (1932)

In the 1910 Federal Census, Allen is a 14 year old boy. By the 1920 Federal Census, Allen is living at home and helping his father on the farm. The Flint City Directory for 1928, shows that Allen and Edith are living at 09 Walnut Avenue in Flint. He is an Auto worker. By the 1930 Federal census, they live in Flint on Perry Street. Allen is working for the Auto Industry as a machine operator. Dale is two months old and they have two roomers living in their home. In Flint City Directories for 1934 and 1937, Allen and Edith were living at 2605 Term Street in Burton which happens to be Cora May Smith Daly's residence. Cora became the second wife of John Daly on May 11. 1929. He is still listed as an Auto worker.

By the 1940 Federal Census, Allen and Edith are living in a rented home in Burton with their two children; Dale and Darla. In the Flint Directory of 1941, Allen is listed as an Autoworker and they are living on Farley Street but by the 1942 Directory his occupation has changed to a clerk and it states that he lives on Clio Street in Flint. On April 22, 1942, Allen registered for the draft for WWII. On his draft, he stated that he lived in Clio on East Johnson Street. This was the home of his father who had been recently widowed. In the Flint 1950 and 1954 Directory, Allen and Edith are living at 916 Perry in Flint Michigan. They had lived at the same address in the 1930 Federal Census.

Allen G Daly died on November 15, 1975. I have not been able to determine where Allen was buried. Many of the other family members, including his father, John, have been buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Clio. I'll continue to search and post his tombstone and cemetery photo here when I find it.

Rest in peace, Allen.
