Claudia, sorry to be so long in responding.I think that that is my Julia.I found the 1850 (and other years) census for Smith county TN at www.rootsweb.com/~cenfiles/tn/smith/.
I see the familes of Arch and Gilbert on page 358B.Look at page 343A.Living in the household of Lawson ALLEN is a Daniel ALLEN 69 born in N.C.Could this Lawson be a brother to Arch and/or Gilbert?Also, look at the Rebeccha ALLEN line right below Daniel's.Says her birthplace is Indiana.Further down the page is a Burton ALLEN indicating the same birth place.I think that these familes are connected, just need to prove it.Burton's and Lawson's age are a bit of a problem.
Another set of N.C. ALLENs can be found on page 248A.These might tie in as well. What do you think? Greg
