"Jesse Allen" was listed directly under "Robert Allen" on the 1790 Orangeburg District census: Orangeburg District (North Part), Page 94,bottom of center row. The names of Robert Allen and West Allen appear in early Hollow Creek, Orangeburg District, records. What was the relationship of these men?One Jesse Allen was grandson and heir of William West of Edgefield Co.,whose July 1779 willmentioned daughter Elizabeth Allen and grandson Jesse Allen.
My notes indicate John Pepper of Pendleton and Robert Allen conveyed land which was part of Jesse Allen's estate to Micajah Martin. (B.Holcomb's "Memorialized Records of Lexington District SC 1814-1825",p.130)A report regarding the court case "Micajah Martin vs. John Quattlebam" (a land title dispute) indicates the plantiff proved Jesse Allen died intestate in 1806 leaving a widow and four children and he, the plantiff, had title to land from the widow (name not mentioned) of Jesse Allen deceased and three of Jesse Allen's children (names not mentioned).The name of the fourth child was mentioned: "William Allen, one of the children of Jesse Allen".The defendant produced a deed from William Allen to one Martin Witt and a chain of title down to himself. ("Reports of Cases Determined in the Constitutional Court of South Carolina" by South Carolina Constitutional Court of Appeals, p.205)
Has anyone documented the relationship of these ALLENS?
