Hey Dwight; It didn't dawn on me when I first read your posting. I printed the posting off and gave it to my husband, (Jeff), to read, so he could give me the info to give to you. He realized that the Abraham that you mentioned, and Catherine, is his second cousin "Abe" Allen. Jeff's dad, Armer Jefferson Allen, had worked with Abe in the mines many years ago. Jeff can remember listening to Abe and Armer talk for hours about their adventures. We had visited with them many years back. They lived near Murphy at that time. Abe showed us his ramps and talked about going to the ramp festival. We thought Abe had passed away by now, but didn't know. We're sorry to hear he's in poor health. When we had seen them, Abe showed Jeff photos of Allen related families and had described them all to Jeff. Jeff was wondering if there is some way he could get copies of the old photos Abe has? Does Catherine still raise geese?! My youngest daughter was very afraid of them and had me carry her around while the geese were out. Catherine made them stay away from my daughter, and would talk to them! Catherine also showed me craft things that she had made from the geese eggs. I would love to exchange Allen, and other family related information with you.
