Hi Thomas, welcome to Wikitree.  If there is a profile for Jeremiah S. Allen on Wiktree, it helps if you can post the profile link when you ask a question about it.  When I used the search function, I found a Jeremiah J. Allen (1791-1852).  Is that the same person?

Yes, the middle initial appears as J or S for Jeremiah Allen (1791-1852) which can be indistinguishable in upper case handwritten form.  He was born in NC, and was in Randolph County, GA for the 1850 census.  Both he and Martha died about 1852 but dates not confirmed. Lots of mysteries about Allen family, 1800-1850.  Trying to solve all I can!  Thanks!
OK that's useful.  Your priority should be to build out your own tree back to Jeremiah.  You might be able to go back one generation using US census data, which is free on FamilySearch.

Hi Thomas, and welcome to WikiTree. If you would upgrade to a full membership (which is free) it would be a lot easier for us to search Jeremiah S Allen for you.  You might even be able to add a few clues for us.

But you are asking questions in the right forum.

Once again, welcome to WIkiTree.
