When Elizabeth Jane (Betty) Allen (Whitson)'s husband, Saunders Louis Whitson, died (just before the Civil War), she took the two boys and went to live with her Sister, Nancy Allen (Weaver) until the war was over. Nancy Allen (Weaver) was the Mother of John Weaver.

Later, Russell Allen (Father to both Elizabeth and Nancy) took Elizabeth and her boys into his home in Cleveland, Tennessee to live. The boys knew very little of the Whitson kin.

When the boys Grandparents (Saunders and Elizabeth) passed on, Wilburn and his Mother, Elizabeth moved to Collin County, Texas.

It is uncertain when Louis Franklin left Cleveland, Tennessee or what pathways he took... he did marry Alice Minerva Olive, somewhere in Ohio (date unknown), and also moved to Collin County, TX and also owned a farm at Ardith (just east of Mckinney). Later, the entire family unit moved to south Texas, near Agua Dulce.
