I'm searching for information on my gfather, Atlas Allen. I know he was born June 27, 1905 - but don't know where. He died OCt. 21, 1964 in Raleigh, NC.He was married to Ethel Davis and had three daughters:Mary Joyce, Grace Elizabeth, and Ann Gladys.
He is buried in Good Hope Baptist Cemetary in Granville, County, NC.
I'd like to know more about his life and where he was born. I've heard stories that he left the family in North Carolina in the 1930s to work in the coal mines of West Virginia. He was involved in a mining accident - don't know the details.
I'd also like information about his parents - I have no leads.
Thanks for any information or advice you can pass along!
