  • ID: I111
  • Name: Rev. James Henry ALLEN
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1776 in Surry Co., NC
  • Note:
    * was he married before Mary?
    * family tree of John Peter Allen

    * from the files of W Lindsey:
    * Dates of birth and death are from tombstone in Old Bethel Cem.,
    Woodruff, SC. The stone of JA reads in part, "Memorial of Rev. James
    Allen, who departed this life 6th ofJan. 1826 age 50 yrs. 2 months
    and 12 days. 24 years proffessor of Relgion in the Baptist
    Denomination 6 yrs of last of live devoted to the Sacred Ministry."
    I have a photocopy of a picture of the stone, which appears to have
    had a very extensive inscription on it.
    * Will is in Spartanburg Co. estate file 289, naming wife Mary, and
    children Elizabeth Cox, Joseph Allen, John Allen, James Allen, Moses
    H. Allen, Sarah Allen, and Polly Allen. The will refers to "all
    children not of age." Exrs. are Joseph and Matthew Allen.The will is
    dated 2 Jan. 1826, and wit. by Henry Cole, Sr., Jesse Cole, and
    Ozborn Cole (WB A, p. 84-86; box 1, pkg. 4). The will was recorded
    13 Feb. 1826.
    * A transcript is in Brent Holcomb, SPARTANBURG CO., SC, WILL
    ABSTRACTS 1787-1840,
    P. 136. " An 18 May 1826 note in the estate file states, "Honord
    Madam, these lines is to inform you that there is no doubt of Thomas
    Lindsey being dead and there is but one living child of the heirs of
    John Lindsey decd and Jemimah Lindsey thinks herself intitled to his
    part of money, etc." This note would seem to have been sent to Mary
    Woodruff Allen, who outlived her husband. Jemimah Lindsey was the
    daughter of MWA's uncle Thomas Woodruff. Why was her husband John
    Lindsey entitled to a share of James Allen's estate?"
