Bill Stein, of the Nesbitt Mem. Lib.in Columbus, tells me that Milton Allen shot his relative, Joseph Safford, in 1870.
He has not been able to find any record of this event.
An Allen family story says Milton hid out down on the Navidad and that his sister brought him food.
He left town and eventually settled in Magdalena, NM where he operated a combination bar and hotel.
He appears on the Socorro Co., NM 1900 census he with his wife, Lee, b. in Texas, m. 1873 a son b. in TX, and two daughters, one born in Texas.
"Texans and Texans" says he had four children.
Any information regarding the event and where in Texas he married and had two (or three) of his children will be very much appreciated!
