Karen, John Henry "Bud" Allen appears to have been my granduncle.He was the son of Crowley Allen and Emma Margaret Cartwright Allen.I did not know who his first wife was, but his daughter Joyce "Joycie" Allen was born 4 Feb 1915 in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama and died 10 Jan 2000 in Eupora, Webster County, Mississippi.She was married twice.Her first marriage to Thomas Oscar McCulloch produced three children:Truman McCulloch, b. 28 Dec 1939, d. Mar 1975; James A. "Bud" McCulloch, no dates, married Billie Sue ?; and Betty Jean McCulloch, no dates, married ? Woods.Her second marriage was to Joe Adron Minyard, b. 18 Apr 1914 in Webster County, Mississippi, d. Jun 1994 in Eupora, Webster County, Mississippi.On the 1920 census, Joycie was listed in the household of her uncle and aunt, Willim Jesse Harris Ivy and Leona Allen Ivy.I assume her mother may have been dead by then.
It is my understanding that John Henry "Bud" Allen had a second marriage to Lucy Bell Clark.This marriage prodouced four children:Rhubert H. Allen, no dates; Dotsy Allen, no dates, who married Riley Therrell Perry (one son, Joe Allen Perry); Felix Allen, b. 15 Aug 1923, d. 16 Oct 1994 in Eupora, Webster County, Mississippi, married to Malniece Kidwell, b. 26 Sep 1928 in Choctaw County, Alabama (one son, Rhubert Edwin Allen, b. 23 Feb 1950 in Choctaw County, Alabama; and Crow (possibly Crowley?) Bill Allen, b. 26 Mar 1925 in Choctaw County, Alabama, d. Nov 1986 in Choctaw County, Mississippi, married to Joyce ? .
