Yes..., Thomas Jefferson Allen did have a son by the name of Hannibal. Hannibal eventually moved out to Texas and died out there. I have a copy of his obituary, and death certificate, that was mailed to me by a direct descendant of his. Thomas also had a son by the name of Jesse Crawford Allen; of whom my husband is a direct descendant through Jesse's son; William Jefferson Allen.
