Recently I have been searching for Williams-Allen connection.Doing research on a Richard Williams of Pitt Co., NC., I have come across the following Allen's: Merriman Allen, Rite (Wright?) Allen Demcy Allen (Granville BK 6 p. 90)(26 June 1762) Demcy Right Allen Betty Allen
Richard Williams was a doctor in the Rev. War.. 1770 Land records in Pitt Co., give his wife as Mary (Allen). Pitt Co., Bk F-145 shows land of Richard William and Mary Williams to Joseph Culpeper. Former Owner:Samuel stokes (1756).Wit. Robert Williams, Priscilla Johnson, Mary Stokes.This Priscilla Johnson was the wife of Jacob Allen.
Betty Sellers posted a message on the RootsWeb Message Board dated 15 Jan 1999 where she gives some history of a Jacob Allen of Colonial Bertie Co., NC. Jacob's wife, Pricilla, was md. 4 times. She was md. first to Wiliam Maund, Jr. then a Canton, next to Jacob Allen, and the 4th time to a Johnson. I believe the information provided by Ms. Sellers connects with theRichard Williams of Pitt Co., NC.
Lisa Scarolahas researched more on the land records in Pitt Co. than I have.She has posted her findings on a Robert Williams (Robert Williams b. 25 Aug. 1758)in the WorldConnect Project:Pitt County Families.She mentions a Nathan Johnson, Shadrach Allen, Herring Allen, Col John Allen, as well as, the Allen's I mentioned in the Pitt Co., land records. If this is the same Jacob you are looking for, I think these two postings will help you. KBHoffman
