Real Name: Dorothea Allen
Case: Lost Heirs
Location: Sutton-Under-Brailles, England
Details: Before her death in 1990, Dorothea Allen destroyed and eliminated all traces of her past. What little to be discovered suggested that her real name before she married might have been Dorothy Farquarson (although another name "Mary Ruddick" also popped up) and she might have been born on January 21, 1901 in Scotland. If any of her relatives can be found, they would inherit her four million dollar estate.
Extra Notes: This segment was featured as part of the December 5, 1990 episode.
Results: Solved. Dorothea Allen has actually been discovered to be Dora Brammer, the daughter of a steelworker in England. She was born in 1895, and was identified by her childhood sweetheart. Miss Brammer became involved with the married Mr. Allen, and when the latter was unable to obtain a divorce from his wife, they lived together in secret, and started a company called Spencer Corsets in Banbury. They lived in Sutton Manor, Sutton under Brailes. Her estate was worth approx £1.5 million and has now been divided between many relatives of her parents, Amos Brammer and Emily Whitham.
