LeRoy Allen and John K Allen (Note: not "John T.") moved on to DeKalb and Jackson Counties on Sand Mountain. Both married sisters named Lucy and Martha McDonald (respectively).
In 1840 LeRoy Allen was living in Winston Co., MS for some reason.
John Allen was in Cass County, GA in 1840. I think John was with him
Since William was born in 1821/22 in TN and Nancy was born in 1820 in GA, it is apparent that John moved to TN around 1821.
John K. Allen was in TN as late as April 1839 when one of his sons was born. Then he appears in Cass County (1840 census) and is there when his next child is born in Jan 1840.
Then the whole clan appears to move to Cherokee Co., AL between November 1845 and Januare 1847.
LeRoy remained in Cherokee County through 1860 while John K. moved with his mother to DeKalb County. Then by 1870 or shortly thereafter, both were in Jackson County, Alabama living on Sand Mountain.
