Norman W. Allen was born around 1829 in Vermont or Canada.
Norman was 32 years old when he enlisted in Company K as a Musician, on May 13, 1861. He was apparently admitted to the Georgetown Seminary hospital in Washington, DC, sometime before the fall of 1861 and allegedly deserted on October 12, 1861, from the hospital in Georgetown.
There is no further record, and no pension seems to be available.
(There was one Norman Allen who enlisted on April 29, 1863, as a Private in Company A, Seventh Pennsylvania cavalry, and was mustered out on August 23, 1865. If so, he applied for a pension in 1888; he was also married to Elizabeth who was living in Kansas when she applied for a widow’s pension in 1926.)
At some point Norman moved out west, eventually settling in Washington State.
He was married to Dianna C (1832-1904).
Norman was probably a widower when he died in 1909 and was buried in the GAR Cemetery in Snohomish, Snohomish County, Washington State: section 1, lot 20.
