I am looking for information concerning John Allen or John H. Allen - from Person County, NC or surrounding counties.

Here is what I have so far: Census from 1850 (Person County, NC) shows him at age 23 and still living with mother Sarah and his siblings. Census from 1860 (Person County, NC) shows him at age 32 and still living with father James and mother Sarah. In 1861, he enlisted in the service and was discharged in 1862. 1866, he married Susan L. Hudgins. The middle name of his wife was Lavinia (spelling?). Census from 1870 (Person County - Bushy Fork) shows him at age 42 living with wife Vinia age 23, daughter Margaret age 3 and two people by the last name Stanfield.

I have no information further to find out what happened to this family, where they might have went, any other children, death, burials, etc...

Any information that you can look up and provide is GREATLY appreciated! :)
