Birth: Feb. 11, 1799
Virginia, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1891
Lee County
Alabama, USA

Leland Allen was in Georgia as early as 1820 court records of Putnam co., Georgia. He had land on the Yellow River, Newton co., before moving on to Alabama by 1850. Leland married Elizabeth Brown White on Feb. 4, 1823, the daughter of Micajah H. White and Judah David.
Leland, son of John Allen and Lucy David (sister of Judah), was named for John Leland, a prominent minister of the day who was one of the founders of the breakaway Missionary Baptist Church. He was ordained at County Line Baptist Church and served the community near Beulah for many years. A grandson of Leland stated that his father, George Washington Allen, erected a monument at the little church near Beulah, in Leland's memory. The wording leads us to believe that the now monument is left now in shambles and unmarked. The first wife, Elizabeth, was the mother of their fifteen children and she died in 1851. There was one more child by his wife, Julia Ann Murphy, and none by his third wife, Jane F. Garrett.
