Looking for info on James Washington Allen, my great, great grandfather. He came to Texas in the 1840s or 1850's from South Carolina (or possibly Georgia).
He was married to Mary Jane Mayo.
I've hit an impasse with him, which is a bit embarrassing, because he is such a recent ancestor, and I even have a picture of him and have second-hand accounts and stories of the man and his wife. I know all of his children's names as well.
I think if I can get back to the Allens in South Carolina/Georgia, then I can probably take a leap further back.
