A James Allen married Adeline Ray in N.C. by 1840. Was Adeline a granddaughter of James Ray who married Dorcus Allen in 1788 in Warren Co., N.C.?

James Allen and Adeline Ray Allen had a daughter Dorcus Jane Allen born 5 July 5 1841 N.C., died 12 Dec 1919 Marshall Co., AL., married first a Hibbs, killed in Civil War. She married next to Charles Levi Isbell whose father Levi Isbell (b.1797) married Sarah Birdwell, daughter of John Birdwell and Mary (Allen). The Birdwells claimed Mary's father was Malcolm Allen from Virginia and Tennessee. I don't know if there was a connection between the two Allen families or not.
