Re: LAWSON ALLEN
I can't add much except that Henrietta Allen, b. 1 Apr 1849 in Williamson CO, TN, married my relative Elijah James Hastings, b. 21 Mar 1838 in Henry CO, TN.

Henrietta is the daughter of David J. (or L.) Allen, b. about 1814 in Virginia, and Mary ???, b. about 1813 in Tennessee (per the 1850 Williamson County census).
Henrietta's oldest brother is Lawson D. Allen, b. about 1839-40 in Tennessee (probably Williamson County), died about 1912 in Pea Ridge Arkansas.
It appears that David Lawson's wife Mary died between 1855 and 1860, and the family moved to Henry County, where they appear on the 1860 census.
I am sure that this Allen family is connected to yours.Maybe this info will help you figure something out.
