  • ID: I22564
  • Name: James Buck Allen
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1857
  • Death: BET 1880 AND 1890 in Florida
  • Note:
    According to Karen Brooks Willey, "On May 24, 1877 James married Louisa Ellen Cook. Louisa's parents I have not proven to my satisfaction as of this date, but will be working on that. They were either Russell and Malinda Brooks Cook, or Green Meadow and Margaret Cooke Cook. Louisa's birthdate is January 8, 1857 - based upon her tombstone. James and Louisa had two children: Daughter Carrie born on March 7, 1878 and daughter Aury J. born May, 1880. At the 1880 census they were all listed, as well as Eunice who was living with them.

    "James died sometime between 1880 and 1890."

    "There was a family story told with very little concrete information that Carrie and her mother went to church and that James poisoned his 'family' while they were out. I can find no death records or newspaper records to support this (due to fires and floods!). Possible scenarios are murder of Aury and Eunice, or murder suicide, etc. At any rate, James, Aury and Eunice all disappear from records."
