I believe that George Washington Allen's parents were one of the Allens from Warren County, NC. This could be George or maybe William. George may have died before his wife moved into Williamson Co. TN, but their children are there. I believe strongly that George and Abigail Cooper Allen or William Allen is the father of G.W. b. 1802. George is the son of Capt. Charles Allen of Warren Co., NC, as is William. Abigail was the dau. of Kannon Cooper of Granville & Franklin Cos.
George Allen either died 1820-1830 without ever moving to Tennessee, or died in Williamson probably 1830-1840.I have data to share.
Abigail Cooper Allen was living with here daughter Priscilla McLemore Allen Meadow Lester in the 1850 census of Williamson Co., TN.
Some give William S. Allen as the father of G. W. Allen b. 1802.The William S. Allen and Catherine Spratt marriage did produce a George Washington Allen b. about 1822, according to the will of William S. Allen. Catherine was living in Williamson Co. in 1850. Two of the sons are around her, John S. and her George W.(abt. 28 yrs old, b. ca. 1822) A Spratt family is adjacent to John S.
Just some ideas for consideration by researchers of George & Betsy Beasley Allen.
