Does anyone have any pictures of Allen Dotson?

Hi, I'm looking for some info and pictures of my great great grandfather Allen Dotson. He was from Northeast Tennessee but lived in Russell County. He stayed with Will and Sarah Dotson of Copper Ridge until he was sent to the Marion Virginia Mental Hospital where he died on February 14,1941. He served time for killing a man around 1911. He was a bootlegger and I've heard he had cherokee indian heritage. None of my family seems to have a picture of him. My grandmother divorced him and went their separate ways. If anyone knows anything about him please let me know. From the marriage records I've gathered that he was born in 1859. His parents were Reuben and Sallie Dotson.
