  • Notes 
    • Her father was Robert H Allen who was had the first harness shop in Buford in 1868 a year after he moved there. It was his brother, Bonaparte Allen who started the Bona Allen Tanning Company which gave rise to the large and profitable Allen enterprises.

      The most complete description I found online was this: http://www.aboutnorthgeorgia.com/ang/Bona_Allen_Tannery. There are several histories of Buford so I assume there is more information in print. If anyone gets to Buford, I'm sure there is a wealth of information available at the Museum and in the local library.

      Mother has a picture of him in his goat cart.
