Hello, This David was a son of David Allen, Sr., who was born c1714 ??.David, Jr. fought under his older brother, Adoniram Allen, b 1734 CT, near the Vermont line.Adoniram lived in Clay Co., KY from 1806 until his death in 1838.You are correct in saying David, Jr. was in Nashville, TN for a while.There is a Combs &c Web site in which David, Jr. is mentioned several times.There was a law suit which dragged on for years about a Nathan Allen and Winifred [Combs] Ridge (wife of Nathan Allen) and some of her property.All this is told in the Combs papers.I also found reference to David Allen (Jr) having asked permission from (??) to cross the Tombigbe River in AL.I don't recall the exact year.Hope this helps.His birthdate, BTW, was 1761.I have a list of some of his children if anyone one should want them.John L. (Lewis?) was a sub agent for the Chickasas Indians.
