My great-grandfather was also Rufus Allen. Jeff (Jefferson Monroe Allen) was my grandfather. Jeff had a BUNCH of children. Below is a list of the ones that I know...
1st Marriage (I don't remember her name)
Irene Allen (Bayne) Minnie Allen (Bradberry) Sally Allen (Vaughn) Myrtle Allen (McCauley) Nannie Allen
2nd Marriage (to Artie Cauley)
Claude Allen (Died at 12 years old) Homer Clyde Allen (my father) Ernest Lee Allen Doc Earl Allen Beatrice Allen (Joy) Robert Allen Mary Allen
I believe that Rufus and his wife are buried at Lima Baptist Cemetary located about 8 miles north of Travelers Rest on Hwy 11. I know that Jeff and Artie are buried there. I can give lots of information about Jeff, but he was dead 15 years before I was born so I can't fill in much information about his family. I believe that Rufus had a twin brother, I can definitely get more information about him. I would love to make contact with another relative. As you can imagine, you have a LOT of cousins. My father had 6 children, there are probably 20 more between the others. Most of these settled in Travelers Rest, Greenville and Anderson SC. Unfortunately, there are only 3 remaining and those are the youngest with the least amount of history.
