Robert Allen Lydia Burch ca 1800 in 1840 Census

My ggg grandfather was Robert Allen born sometime around the 1800's married Lydia Burch in NC by Joseph Burch. They are in the 1840 Gilmer Co. Census with his wife and 6 of his children. He has another child before he dies and the eldest son Jarrett Erslie Allen applied for letters of Guardianship in Dec. 1852. He was dead before the 1850 census and the children were living with their maternal grandparents Jarrett Burch & Millie Pinson in Union County GA. Never in all my research have I been able to find mention of his parents. The Allen's in this area are very secretive and my mother has said that she was told to let "sleeping dogs lie". If anyone has access to death records in that area in that time span I would dearly love to find those parent's names. I can do the same for anyone researching in the Habersham Co., Banks Co., Jackson Co., Hall Co. and surrounding areas. Thank you for anything you can do.
