The James Dowell you are referring to in 1810 Warren County appears to have been living in the southwestern section of what would become Allen in 1815. I base that on the names of nearby householders such as the Anthonys and Borens who I know lived in the New Roe area. Is the David Dowell who appears in 1820 Allen and in the same area a relative as well? I know there were Dowells in Sumner County, TN. I have an interest in the Dowells because there seems to have been some connection with a Dowell family in Albemarle County, VA and my McClary family who moved to the Sumner/ southern Warren (later Allen) county border around 1810. Several family names which were in the Buckmountain area of Albemarle appear in the southern Allen, northern Sumner around that time (McClary, Dowell, Foster, Dalton, Snow, etc)
