I am looking for any info on Rubin Wallen (b. 18 Oct, 1890 d. 16 Aug 1936). Rubin was Police Chief of St. Charles at the time of his death, Killed while making an arrest. Rubin's name was misspelled in the Aug 20, 1936 newspaper print of Powell Valley News, it was spelled as Reuben. The current info I have is.... Rubin's parents are George W. Wallen (b. Jan 1863-d. 10 Nov 1905) & Rachel B. (Johnson) Wallen (b. 27 Jun 1867-d. 14 Jun 1953), one brother, Harmon (b. 18 Nov 1895-d. 20 Dec 1951), one son, Creed Robinette Wallen (b. 30 July 1925)and 2 granddaughters, Wanda Dean Stanley (b. 20 Oct 1952) and Deborah Lee Barker, that's me, (b. 22 Jun 1968). There are great & great-great grandchildren as well. We know for sure that Rubin was married to Bonnie Collins (b. 1 Sept or Oct 1899-d. 12 April 1980), Grannie to us girls, but we have no dates of that marriage. We think there might be more siblings to Creed, my dad, please let me know of anything. Thanks!!
