This is the most interesting postings I've seen on NC Allens in a long time.My g-g-g/father was James Allen born NC in 1788. He married Prudence ??? who was born in 1792. They moved to TN where a son, Uriah Emery Allen was born in 1818.I do not know where in TN. Later this family moved to Franklin Co, AL, then on to Pickens Co, AL.James and Prudence are listed in the 1850 census of the southern district of Pickens Co, AL. They, their son Uriah and his son Alexander Jeffreson Allen are all buried in Pickens Co. Any info on James and Prudence will be greatly appreciated.
