A newspaper item appearing in a Texas newspaper in May 1961 gives a nice history of "Aunt Pic" as Beulah was called, indicates she was three years old when she traveled with her parents from Shady Grove, Alabama to Madison County, Texas. Later the family settled near Flynn in Leon County.

A little shy of 18, she married Robert A Allen on March 8, 1889 at Rodgers Prairie by Bro. Shed Cummings. The union produced six children, five boys and one girl. She lived to be 97 years old, outliving all her children and her husband.

Aunt Pick was the daughter of Robert Mansel and Emma Laura Brooks, one of twelve children born to Robert and his three wives. Her sisters were Clara Jennings and Margaret Kitchens, and brothers, Thad, Samuel & Wiley Mansel. Aunt Pic had six half brothers and sisters, also.

Aunt Pick was the mother of: Ruth Ann born 1890, Thomas J born 1892, Houston born 1894, Payne born 1902 Robert Leon born 1908 and Travis Allen who died in infancy.
