To Lesa Ikeler I relooked at my notes. The Nathon N. G. Allen I noted above seems to be your man. I found Eliba Allen all over the place in land sales in the 1836 tax list and 1838,1839 land sales and as JP he married about 1/3 of the folk there in the marriage books. To gorgo on Allens in Itawamba try http://www.rootsweb.com/~msitawam/ But I think my Natham is a different guy than N. N. G. Allen. I would like to know if I have all of Natham Eliba ALLEN's children and/or who's children all those ALLENS at Itawamba are. I think a bunch of ALLENs emigrated to Caldwell COunty TX in mid 1850's. - John.
