He married Julia Ann Bates December 21, 1843
Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois. He married Martha Brown Sanders on 22 Nov 1851. He married Lenora Cannon February 27, 1857 in Salt Lake City. Martha died in 1897.

His twin brothers' name is Reddick Newton Allred.

His father, Isaac and his family were among the fifteen Allred families who fled before the mobs when they were driven from Nauvoo. They crossed the Missouri River on the ice and escaped into bleak surroundings of that uninviting land with the faithful followers of President Brigham Young.

In the meantime, war had been declared against Mexico, and the recruitment of able-bodied men was proceeding in all parts of the country. It is well known how the officials of the United States Government ordered that the fleeing body of Mormons be overtaken and that 500 of their young men by drafted for with into the army. And this after having permitted and even assisted in the expulsion of the Saints from their own homes and lands! The army officers had been directed to get 500 men or, upon failure of the Mormons to supply them, to count this people as traitors fleeing under false pretenses and therefore worthy of extermination.

The Saints were overtaken in Indian territory. Upon hearing the demands of the government officials, Brigham Young replied, "We are law-abiding citizens, and if we haven't five hundred in men we will make up the number with stalwart women." He then advised the young men to join the army. He promised them that they would not have to shed the blood of their fellow men and that this affliction, heaped on them in the hour of their trials, would finally turn as a blessing upon their heads.

From the group of fifteen Allred families, several members volunteered to go with the "Mormon Battalion" Among these were Reddick N. Allred, James R. Allred, T.S. Allred, and Reuben W. Allred. Reddick Newton and Redden Alexander Redden were twin sons of Isaac.
