Online trees state she was the wife of Richard Henry Allen, owner of the Rienzi plantation. A biographical sketch of her husband stated that she was a daughter of Mr. L.S. Green of Memphis, TN.

An L.S. Grune [L.S. Greene user submitted correction] is listed on the 1850 Shelby county, TN census, with wife Sarah and an 11 year old Elizabeth. Other sources show his name as Lorenzo L. Green who married Sarah R. Smith in Davidson Co., TN in 1835. On the 1880 Lafourche Parish census, Lorenzo and Sarah are living with Bettie and her husband Richard.
