Note

In 1805, Thomas Allen and Zachariah Allen were enumerated in the 1805 tax list of Davidson County, Tennessee. Obviously, there must be two Thomas Allens as another Thomas Allen was found in Rowan County, North Carolina as late as 1811. ~ from the online Bryan Family History

Biography

Thomas Allen was born around 1766.[1]

An 1873 newspaper article in The White Hall Register (51 years after his death) has a detailed biographical sketch of Thomas Allen and his brother, Zachariah Allen:

White Hall Register White Hall, Greene County, Illinois Saturday, February 15, 1873 Vol. IV, No. 26

The Allen Family

In giving the Allen Family, it will be difficult to avoid a greater or less notice of the Bell family also, since the most noted member Esq. John Allen, married a Miss Bell, and Mr. Frank Bell, father of Sheriff Bell and all the others, married a Miss Allen.

Thomas Allen

The original proprietor of Belltown and mill, as also joint progenitor of the Allen family, came from Tennessee to Madison County, stopping near Upper Alton, about as early as any other white settlers in that region. His wife was a Miss Bryant having been married in Tennessee. His house at Belltown was the first house built north of Apple Creek in Greene County. Mr. Morrow was long miller for Mr. Allen at Belltown. He with the others came to Greene in 1819, locating on Apple creek, and at once establishing a water mill, near about where Bell’s mill now stands. The building at first was a rude structure, and the dam was made of logs thrown across the stream, with sand filling. On account of the dry summers and spring freshets, this first dam soon went down the stream, as did a number of others after, made in much the same way. Mr. Allen could not have kept his enterprise in operation but for the fact that when each dam would successively wash away the whole country round, without reward, would turn out for days, and weeks perhaps, and restore it. The first successful dam gotten up was made by one Norton, who placed a formidable barricade of brush and dirt, behind a log wall, as usual, and this stood till the usefulness and reputation of the mill site became established. Mr. Allen then became a widely known and important character in the county. He was sociable, cheerful and a real philosopher. He was a Calvinist seceder from the Presbyterian church. He died at Belltown about 1835… [2]

Author’s[3] note: It appears that Thomas and Zachariah may have lived in Davidson County, Tennessee prior to migrating to Greene County, Illinois. However, Thomas Allen married Margaret Bryan in 1789 in Rowan County, North Carolina (not in Tennessee as stated in the newspaper article). The newspaper article continues:

Wills

The will of Eramus Wethers Allen (signed October 26, 1787 and proven August 5, 1789) mentions several daughters and two sons, William Allen and Thomas Allen and mentions wife Sarah. On October 25, 1786, Thomas Allen was granted 43 acres of land on Bryan's Mill Creek next to James Forbush, John Johnston, James Chapman and James Wilson. On April 11, 1789, Eramus and Sarah Allen sold 43 acres of land on Brian's Mill Creek next to James Forbis, John Johnston, James Chapman and James Wilson. It appears from these land transactions and will that Thomas Allen may be the son of Eramus Allen and Sarah Allen.

In 1797, "Margaret" Allen was listed in her father's will and Thomas Allen was a witness for the will. In November of 1800, Thomas Allen lets Brumbly Coker have 162 acres on Elisha's Creek for 200 pounds. On December 27, 1806, John Bryan and wife Rebekah let Thomas Allen have 105 acres on Muddy Creek next to Edward Yarbory and Phillip Hanes for $300. In 1807, Thomas Allen let James Baxter have 105 acres on Muddy Creek next to Matthew Jones and Valentine Fry for 150 pounds. On April 8, 1811, John Fox let Joseph Dial have 270 acres on Elisha's Creek waters of Dutchman's Creek next to land owned by Joseph Allen, said Joseph Dial, Thomas Allen, John Cheshier, Brumble Coker and Nicholas W. Gaither.

notes followed will:

There is also evidence of Thomas Allen living in Davidson County, Tennessee. In 1805, Thomas Allen and Zachariah Allen were enumerated in the 1805 tax list of Davidson County, Tennessee. Obviously, there must be two Thomas Allens as another Thomas Allen was found in Rowan County, North Carolina as late as 1811. In 1809, Samuel Bryan (2) purchased 50 acres of land from John Burnham in Davidson County, Tennessee. In the description of the land, Zachariah Allen, Thomas Allen and Newton Edney were listed as neighbors. In 1812, Thomas Allen and Zachariah Allen were listed in another tax list of Davidson County, Tennessee. In 1816, Thomas Allen and Zachariah Allen were listed in another tax list of Davidson County, Tennessee.
In 1839, Samuel Bryan (3) sold the fifty acres that Samuel Bryan (2) purchased from John Burnham in 1809. This deed also lists Zachariah Allen, Thomas Allen and Newton Edney as neighbors. This was land inherited by Samuel Bryan (3) from his father, Samuel Bryan (2). It is not known if the Allens lived there at this time or if the description of the property was just being copied from the original deed. In 1820, Thomas Allen (born before 1775) was living in Madison County, Illinois (the parent county of Greene County, Illinois). In 1830, Thomas Allen (born 1760 to 1770) was living in Greene County, Illinois

In 1840, Margaret (Bryan) Thomas was living with her son, Thomas Allen, in Greene County, Illinois. Margaret (Bryan) Allen died on November 29, 1846 in Belltown, Illinois and was buried in Belltown, Illinois. In 1820, Thomas Allen, Jr. (born 1775 to 1794) was living in Madison County, Illinois. In 1840, Thomas Allen, Jr. was living in Greene County, Illinois. Thomas' mother, Margaret (Bryan) Allen was living with him. Thomas Allen never married and moved to Missouri. Thomas Allen died in 1853 in Lawrence County, Missouri. In 1820, Samuel Allen (born 1775 to 1794) was living in Madison County, Illinois. Samuel Allen never married and moved to Missouri. Samuel Allen died in 1857 in Lawrence County, Missouri. For many years, this author and several descendants of Nathan Allen (born 1799) believed that Nathan Allen was this missing child. However, recent discoveries by descendants of Nathan Allen have now greatly discounted this connection where it is now longer considered plausible.
