I took a few photos at that time, but mainly remember the story he told me; Several members of the Allen family married into the Hudson family (say, 3 girls married 3 Hudson brothers and one Allen boy married a Hudson girl or vice a versa). Even at that time, some of the names were barely readable and today, only the Parilee Allen can sorta be read.
And, as far as I know that Allen family (Amos Allen) only lived in what is now Harmon county a short time, they returned to Johnston county (Tishomingo area). My Grandmother, Gertrude "Halley" Allen wife of Jesse James "Jess" Callen, was 1-12 years old while returning to south-central Okla., made what dad called, Noon Camp, they stopped to eat and rest and or fed the team, while stopped, Quannah Parker stopped by their camp and jokingly offered to take the 10 yr. old girl (my grandmother)!!
My Grandmother, Gertrude "Allen" Callen FaG 33579125 is buried at Mangum, Roselawn and one of her brothers, Hatton Amos Allen FaG 119717916 is buried in the Navajo Cemetery, northeast of Altus, the very first FAG Memorial I created in Nov. 2013. Hatton Amos Allen's first wife and mother of twins,(these three) are believed to be buried here at Dryden.
