sorry about that, it should be obvious how common the name is just by reading your name, Barbara Allen (ivey) is my aunt!! I did just talk to her and my mother, evidently the Allen i am looking for is John Dilliard Allen and he was actually born in Hilham TN, which i guess is Overton County. He married otia carlye alson, and my grandfather was William Escue Allen, who's birthdate was 27-Mar-1909, my mom believes he was born in Crossville, TN. He died in Leesburg, Florida, (this if from my memory sorry, i believe it was a heart attack in the late 60's or early 70's. William Escue Allen married my grandmother Velma Harrison and they lived in Center Hill Florida, where my mother was born, there was my mom, Norma, Barbara, billy and Bobby, Though Billy is also deceased, again in the late 60's of cancer.
