Wilson Laxton Allen was born 1802, md. Sally Campbell in Russell Co., KY, Wilson Laxton Allen was the son of Ananias Allen, who was born in 1756 in Orange Co., NC and died in 1840 in Jackson Co., AL. Duke Allen who appeared on the 1840Jackson Co., AL census, was from Jackson Co., TN. Where he appears on the 1820 and 1830 censuses in Jackson Co., TN. He moved back to Jackson Co., TN and died there in 1882. Ironically Ananias Allen and family moved to Jackson Co., AL from Jackson Co, TN about 1825. There may be some relation Ananias and Duke Allen, I have not been able to find it as yet. The other Allens you mentioned I have no information on them. It appears Benjamin and Martin lived in western Jackson Co., near Scottsboro. While Ananias lived nar Stevenson.
