Connie, you might want to add this to your data on John J. Wallen:

Circuit Court Records for Hawkins County, Tennessee, April 1836 term, show that the state filed charges against John J. Wallen for "Lewdness and Adultry" with a married woman, Prudy Pratt. He was found guilty of adultry. According to divorce papers filed by his wife, Elizabeth, the adulterous relationship had continued for six years. John J. Wallen was divorced by first wife Elizabeth on March 14, 1837 (Hawkins County, Tennessee Circuit Court Minutes 1837-1851, page 21-23). John J. Wallen married Prudy Pratt and moved to Kentucky. John J. Wallen and wife Prudy are found on the 1850 census of Floyd County, Kentucky, Family # 358 (archive). Information on John J. Wallen and Prudy's children is from this census.

Children of John J. Wallen and Prudy Pratt are:

1. John Wallen born about 1835, Hawkins County, Tennessee
