My gg aunt, Matilda Baker, married Asa Melvin Allen (born May 1878 in Al. and called Asie) 26 Mar 1899 in Clay Co., Alabama. They lived in Tallapoosa Co. until at least 1909, then Matilda died. I believe it was soon after childbirth. He then married Zora Hawthorne (Matilda's niece) on 11 Sep 1910. I can't find him on the 1910 census, but in 1920 he and Zora are living in Jackson Co., Al. and in 1930 Zora is in Tallapoosa Co., listed as a widow. Alabama death records list Acie Melivn Allen as dying in Etowah Co. in 1927. Is my Asa possibly your Reuben's son? I can't find any information on his family.
