I really don't have any info on my gf.All I know is that he was in the Braggs/Muskogee, Oklahoma, area in 1910/1911. The story I have is that he and my gm were married ? and that he didn't like the area and left before my mother was born in Nov. 1911.Supposedly he was a sailor by trade. I wonder if possibly he came to the area via the Arkansas River on a boat which brought supplies to the area.
I was also told that his birthday was Feb 14 ?.I always thought that was why he was named Valentine, but after finding so many Valentine Allens in my research, I now doubt that.Any info would be appreciated.
