Descendants of John Allen, Sr R.S.

Generation No. 1

1. John1 Allen, Sr R.S. was born November 06, 1772 in Allendale, SC area (Source: A handwritten record sent by Patricia Graham says that he is a son of James Allen., From Uncle Walter Speight Bryan son of Robt B Bryan I, DAR Recds of Mrs Jack G Jennings; Screven Co History by C D Hollingsworth.), and died December 12, 1825 in Barnwell Dist, SC - b Swallow Savannah Cem, Allendale, SC (53 yrs-6 mo-1 day) (Source: Records of Allens sent by Patricia Graham, including census, hand written family records and published records, old handwritten paper, unsigned, of family history, Wiregrass GA Vol II makes a mistake in confusing John Allen, Sr, John Allen Jr and James Allen. (pages 25-26); Between the two graves of John and Ann is a small slab: "Removed from Plantation 1 1/4 miles NE of Station in Allendale 1958."). He married Ann Nancy Dewees in SC, daughter of Cornelius Dewees and Sarah Minors.

Notes for John Allen, Sr R.S.:

(Note from Judy Canant, Compiler of the Allen information: The letter, below, from Don, echoes my thoughts, also. It should be given some attention and research. It may be helpful to examine the Josiah Allen file which is also posted on Allendale GenWeb.)

From: DONHAYWORTH@Prodigy.Net

For all of you trying to determine the parents and earlier ancestors of John, Allen Sr., who married Ann Nancy Dewees, I have collected and reviewed a lot of data and offer the following possibilities for your consideration and further research. Note that I cannot prove any of this beyond the data that I reference in the following text, but believe the connections are at least worth additional follow-up.

(1) I believe that it is probable that John Allen Sr. is a son of the Josiah G. Allen who died intestate in 1824. (See the record recently sent by Linda which references Film # 0954248-I-923, item 18, pg 39) -------- This possible connection is based on the facts that a John Allen was initially named as administrator for the estate of Josiah G. Allen when he died in 1824. At the time the reference petition was filed in 1843, Leroy Allen was administrator, d.b.n., John Allen having died prior to 1843. John Allen Sr. was living in 1824, but died in 1826. He also had a son Leroy Allen who would have been a logical successor to his father as administrator. Administrators of estates are often a close relative of the deceased; a brother, or more often a son if one of the sons is of an age to serve in this capacity. Based upon these facts and the proximity and time factors, I believe it is probable that the John Allen initially named as administrator of the estate is the same as John Allen, Sr. and a son of Josiah G. Allen.

(2) I believe it is also probable that the Josiah G. Allen above is the same person as the Josiah Allen (also known as Josiah Allen, Jr.) who was a Lt. in the Revolutionary War, born ca 1745, and the father of Joseph Allen, Sr. who married Sarah Ann Bryan. ------- This possibility is based on the fact that John Allen, Sr. had a brother named Joseph Allen who is believed to be the son of a Josiah Allen and (unknown) Etheridge. This would mean that Josiah G. Allen married first, probably about 1768 (unknown) Etheridge. Children of this first marriage would have included John Allen, Sr., Joseph Allen, Sr., Jennett Allen and possibly others not known. His second marriage would have been to Sarah E. Bryan, who was much younger than him, and their only child was the Ann Allen mentioned in the reference film. Note that Joseph Allen, Sr. and Jennett Allen could not have been the children of the Josiah Allen who died in 1782 (see point 3 below) because they would have still been minors at the time of his death and were not so named.

(3) It is possible that the father of Josiah G. Allen (who may also have been known as Josiah Allen Jr. until after his father's death) was the Josiah Allen born ca 1730 in VA, died 1782 in SC, and who married Elizabeth DeLoach (probably in early 1750s). ------ This Josiah Allen (who would have been styled Josiah Allen, Sr.) is known to have had a son James Allen who was his eldest son and administrator of his estate when he died in 1782. This is most likely the James West Allen, born ca 1750, who married Mary "Polly" Young and would have been the older brother of Josiah G. Allen/Josiah Allen, Jr.. While these two were probably sons of Josiah Allen, Sr. and Elizabeth DeLoach, the younger children named in his estate were most likely children from a second marriage to an unknown spouse.

(4) Should the first two points above be valid (the third point is not relevant to the following), it is interesting to note that Joseph Allen, Jr (son of Joseph Allen, Sr. and Sarah Ann Bryan) would be a grandson of Josiah G. Allen. This would mean that when Joseph Allen Jr. married Sarah E. Bryan Allen he married his grandfather's second wife and widow (who would have been his step-grandmother although she was younger than Joseph, Jr.). I have come across similar situations in researching other families. In fact marrying the widow of a close relative, although usually the widow of a brother, was very common in those days. Note that the only blood relationship of Joseph Jr. and Sarah was that she was a cousin of his mother.

While I realize that none of these points a proven, I believe that they are viable possibilities and should be considered by anyone pursuing further research. I would be interested in any information any of you might have to prove or disprove any of the above points.

Note from compiler, Judith Presnell Canant: There seems to be confusion over who Paul H Allen's parents are. Please note that all legal documents signed by Ann Lewis Bryan Allen (wife of James Allen, Sr) were signed with her mark (X), indicating that she was unable to write. This document, above, is signed by Ann Allen, herself, and not with a mark. This indicates, to me, that this is a different Ann - one who was able to sign her name. Note that the witnesses are different, also. The Budd tract is not mentioned in any documents, that I have seen, of the other Ann Bryan (wife of son, James). If anything, further, is submitted to show/prove that the parents of Paul H Bryan were 2 other people, it will be changed in these records.

Generation No. 2

2. James2 Allen, Sr (John1) was born Aft. 1785 in Barnwell Dist, SC (Source: Records of census, published records and hand written details of family history and dates unsigned., Wiregrass GA Vol III, p 392, "James Allen was never a resident of Georgia." from handwritten record; Recds of Walter S Bryan.), and died 1821 in Barnwell Dist, SC see instrument filed June 16, 1836 by widow and children (Source: Records of Allens sent by Patricia Graham, including census, hand written family records and published records, Instrument filed in Barnwell, SC by widow Mrs Ann Allen and her children, June 16, 1836, states that he died in 1821. Barnwell Courthouse.). He married Ann Louis Lewis Bryan 1804 in Orangeburg Dist, SC (Source: Microfiche U, page 423 - South Carolina), daughter of Joseph Bryan and Elizabeth Hargett.

Notes for James Allen, Sr: Wiregrass Ga later corrects previous assumption that this James Allen was John Allen (Vol II, p 28)

"(1)Some corrections are necessary by reason of the discovery by the Compiler of a Court of Equity Proceeding in Barnwell Dist, SC, since publication of Volume II. The proceeding was filed Mar 10, 1836 (see below). The foregoing (2)(written out below) shows conclusively that the father of the Allen brothers named (in the Proceeding), who moved to Lowndes Co GA was not John Allen but but rather James Allen. By Local inquiry the Compiler had not been able to learn who was the husband of Mrs Ann Allen who moved to Lowndes Co, and had concluded the gift of slave instrument referred to in the sketch, showed who her husband was" (note from Judy Canant: that instrument was from the father of James Allen, John Allen, Sr, who was married to another Ann, Ann Dewees of SC). "It must now be concluded that her husband was not John but rather James Allen, and the Mrs Ann Allen who received the gift of slaves was a different Ann Allen from her who moved to S GA. (3) Paul Allen listed in Vol II, was evidently a son of John and Ann Allen and not of James and Ann Allen, similarly so with Norman Allen (Vol 1)." (Judy Canant: Norman is not named as son of John Allen Sr and his wife Ann Dewees Allen in anything that I have seen. I welcome any proof of this assumption in order to make the Allen history complete).

Barnwell Co Deed Records:

Hansford D Duncan vs Mrs Anne Allen, et al Specific Performance and Partition. Filed Mar 10, 1836.

Petitioner says that he found a tract of vacant land on Lemon Swamp in Barnwell District, containing about 1000 acres; he proposed to James Allen of said district that same be taken up and run into a grant, Allen paying the expenses of same and petitioner running same out, and grant to issue to Allen but to be owned half and half between them. Allen died (blank date) and prior to his death acknowledge petitioner's interest in said property. Said James Allen died (blank date) leaving as his heirs-at-law his widow Mrs Anne Allen and the following children: John Allen, Richard Allen, James Allen, Hansford Allen, William Allen. Prays for partition and vesting of one-half of land in him.

Defendants' answer filed 6/16/1836; say they know nothing about any such equity of plaintiff; that the said James Allen died in 1821, and they found the grant in his name among his papers; they have told petitioner if he could establish his claim or right to any part of the land they would convey it to him without necessity of court proceedings, but he has failed to do so; Allen kept up all the taxes on the land, and his admr. has paid same since then till now. Willis J Duncan was admr. Defendants caused suit to be entered in 1831 against trespassers and petitioner supported the trespassers, nevertheless, defendants won the suit. Defendants sold some of the land, 550 acres, in Jan 1836 to Moses Smoke. Defts. say petitioner is bared from proceeding with his suit by reason of fact that the pretended agreement between deceased and plaintiff was not in writing, and also that under the law no deputy surveyor can have or take any interest, directly or indirectly, in any vacant land he is called upon to survey, under pain of heavy penalties; that said petitioner was at the time the lands were surveyed, a deputy surveyor.

Decree in favor of defendants, (no date shown). William Allen, a defendant was a minor. The decree says the land was granted to James Allen 8/1/1814.

Later, William Allen ratifies deed when of age Nov 5, 1841 (Deed Bk AA. page 508, Barnwell Co SC)
