Their birthdates are approx 1810 & 1817 respectively. Allen was buried in Coushatta, LA (he died after 1900.) Their child, Louisiana Upshaw, b. 1845 Winn Parish, LA, was 1st wife to Thomas William Howell b.26Nov1834, Emmanuel, GA, d. 27Sep1924 in Shreveport, LA. She died inchildbirth- the child was stillborn. Their Daughter, Alice Matilda Howell, was 2nd wife to Lawrence Augustus Stahl, b.1856 in Old Sparta, Bienville, LA d. 26NOV1897 in Coushatta, LA.
