Tom S. Allen, Montague Co., Tx.: Father of Floyd Clifford And Russel J. Allen

I'm looking for info on his wife, my great-grandmother, and any further back history. The 1930 census says his parents were born in Alabama, and his wife in Arkansas. He's buried, along with his sons and grandson, in Dye Mound Cemetery in Montague County, Tx. He was born around 1878, and he appears in the 1930 Census for Montague County, at the age of 52-53. I know he was a blacksmith, and that we are related to the Upshaws somehow.

I also know that a Leonidas Upshaw is buried there, and that his people were originally from the Tallapoosa County area of Alabama. Also, a Leroy Upshaw was living in nearby St. Jo, who was supposedly a cousin of my grandfather, Floyd (also known to everyone as Tiny or Tiney), but I have no idea how they were related. Floyd married Linnie Gertrude King, daughter of Lafayette (Fate) and Bessie King, so if any Kings have an insight, that would be helpful.
