I do not know how far Blount County, Alabama is from Lincoln and Moore Counties, Tennessee, butthere are an awful lot of "John Wiley Allen" names in the Allen family from there.
My great great uncle was named either "John W." or "John H."
He was born in 1855 and after 1880, he disappears.I have been unable to find anything else of him at all.His father was "John W. Allen".
Then there is also a "John Wiley Allen" son of John H. Allen who was born in 1827.He was killed in the Civil War.
His brother, David Philip Coleman Allen, named one of his sons "John Wiley Allen".
If you wish to pursue this line of "John Wiley" names, let me know.
