Elizabeth was the daughter of Adam Fox and Elizabeth Derrick. According to the history prepared by N.G.T. Fox, she married an Allen. Alfred Allen, a land surveyor, who died in the 1840’s was probably her husband. He died while living in McMinn County before the 1850 census. Elizabeth returned to Sevier County and later moved to Jeffferson County.
Her age from census reports was not consistent and indicated a birth year of 1790-1800. Based on the age of the children living with her at the time of the 1850 and 1860 census, she would have to have been born about 1800, however the birthday list of John Huskey shows an Elizabeth Allen of 4 August 1790. The children in her census household could have been grand-children instead.
