He died 16 Nov 1924 in Gordon Co., GA and is buried at Scott Cemetery in Plainville, Gordon Co., GA. According to his death certificate his parents were Jno Allen and Sallie Goss. John C. Allen married Sarah Goss in 1846 in Habersham Co., GA. Sanders Worth was 3rd son. He had one sister named Laura. Brothers named James Maxwell, Samuel Denton,John Singleton or Sain and Marcus T. who all had surname of Allen.
