I realize this message has been here for a long time but I feel the need to add my two cents. John DeKalb Alldredge and James Jackson Alldredge also had a brother named Joel Harvey Alldredge. Their mothers name was Jane Harvey. Re: 1850 Angelina County, Texas census. Uncle Billy was my Grandpaw, James Washington's brother. There was also a John A., Jesse and Jane. There may have been a Joel but I am not aware of him. The story was that Jesse died young, but I found out that Jesse wound up in an orphanage and grew up to marry and raise a large family. I have a pix of him and he looks just like his brothers. Bonnie should know. She is descended from Jesse.
