How sure are you of his birth year?

There's a three yr old Hard ALLEN in Jasper Co. in 1850:
ALLEN, Harris age 39
George age 15
Samuel age 15
John age 13
Elizabeth age 12
Amarintha age 13
Ann age 11
Sarah age 10
Hard age 3
Bryant age 1

In the 1870 census for Newton Co, GA, there's a John ALLEN, of the correct age to be the above John, his family, and a Bryant ALLEN, of the correct age to be the above Bryant, all living next door to Thomas J. and Julia A. AIKENS. I wonder perhaps if Julia was an ALLEN by birth and with the middle initial "A" perhaps she is the Ann listed above?

It's hard to tell from the 1850 if all of those children belong to Harris or is some of them are relatives he's taken in.

Thomas AIKEN, Julia ALLEN AIKEN and their daughter Laura are buried in Red Oak United Methodist Cemetery in Covington, Newton Co, GA. Bryant ALLEN is in the same cemetery.
