Bartlett Allen was a corporal in the American Revolutionary War and served in a militia unit under Capt. Woodson Daniel of Wake County, North Carolina where he was recruited. See his RW pension statement (#S8012) at http://www.southerncampaign.org/pen/s8012.pdf

According to his RW pension statement of 1832, he was born in Nash County, North Carolina in 1757 but was living in Wake County when called into service. His parents are unknown; however, on the 1784 Wake County tax lists for Capt. Daniel's district, he is listed with no acreage beside Benjamin Allen who would appear to be his father. From deeds and other records, he appears to be related in some way to Benjamin Allen as well as Reuben Allen who was a resident of Wake County until the mid 1780's when he relocated to Elbert County, Georgia. In 1794, Reuben Allen of Elbert County, GA gives Bartlett his power of attorney to recover a debt owed him.
