Very good, I also can give these poor girls a mother.Tuscaloosa is where the state mental institution is located.She very well could have been put in the institution.There may also have been a deaf mute school of some sort there.
She may have been living with some other relatives that I don't know of.Cyntha Emma was about 76 yrs old at the time, a widow.
One of Cyntha Emma's children, Ottis Clifford "Otto" Willmon & his wif, Lura Mae Bonner, both died in Tuscaloosa, so it's possible his Aunt Mary was living with them.
I've known about them since my cousin, Erna Evans, found C. H. Allen's will and he named these two girls as his dtrs.My daddy never knew of them, but my older aunt did, and for whatever reason, she sent me on a wild goose chase on C. H., which slowed me down for years looking for this "non-existent" person.
Even after I sent her a copy of the will, she denied the fact.She was a vindictive old woman so who knows why.She never spoke to me again after this, along with me telling I'd found Native American blood in our line.
The worse part is my daddy would have loved to know his cousins and to know he worked alongside one of them for several years, neither knowing they were cousins.
Do you have the information on Cyntha Emma Allen and Columbus Perkins Willmon?If not, I will be glad to share info with you.
