The couple moved to Washington County and obtained a plantation through land grants under Andrew Jackson's administration. The plantation, also named Blantonia, was located near the current city of Greenville, Mississippi.

Harriet Byron McAllister's father, John Keith McAllister, was a native of Lisburn, County Antrim, Ireland.
