My husband's great-great-great-great grandfather was Thomas Jefferson "Jeff" Allen. "Jeff" was said to have been born in 1808 in Greenville, (or Greenville Co.), South Carolina. He and his family moved to Polk Co., Tennesse about 1847. On his headstone it only has the years of his birth and death of 1808-1885. He was the first person buried at the Tumbling Creek Cemetery, (AKA; Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery), in Polk Co., Tennessee.
Thomas Jefferson "Jeff" Allen 1st married Mary Jane Crawford. Mary was born about 1812 in possibly South Carolina.
"Jeff" and Mary had the following children; Jesse Crawford Allen (my husband's line) John Allen (Rev.) Hannibal Allen Thomas "Tom" J. Allen Missouri Allen Mary (or May) Allen George W. "G. W." Allen James M. Allen Catherine Allen (this child, we don't know if she was a daughter, adopted daughter, or a grandchild that was living in "Jeff's" household. We need more information about her.
"Jeff" married 2nd, Susan Head on 17 Jan. 1858 by David Withrow (JP). Don't believe "Jeff" and Susan had any children together.
If anyone has any information about Thomas Jefferson Allen, his parents, his siblings, and his children, it would be greatly appreciated.
