Since Cheryl mentioned him, and also contacted me about the same person, here is something on Emanuel Allen.Cheryl has noted a DNA match between Emanuel Allen and her line (which came from Montgomery/Grayson/Carroll VA to Buncombe/Madison NC)
Emanuel Allen b. 1791 SC, d. aft. 1850, mar. Nancy Tucker b. 16 Jun 1808 Spart. Co. SC, d. 14 Jan 1873 Spart. Co. SC, dau. of John Tucker and Nancy Wofford
1850 census Spart. Co. SC, no. 2985: E. Allen 59, Nancy 43, Garland 16, Wade 14, Ann 12, Levi 9, Martha 7, all b. SC.
From this census plus a few items from Landrum's History of Spart. Co. SC, I get known ch. as the following (approx. bdates): a. Dr. Garland b. 1834 SC, d. CW b. Dr. Wade b. 1836 SC; 2nd lt. in Co. D, 3rd SC Vols, wounded and d. Fort Delaware (Battle of Knoxville?) - note an R. L. Allen was a pvt. in same co. perhaps related? c. Ann b. 1838 SC d. Levi b. 1841 SC (same as B. L.? [perhaps Benjamin Levi] - or were more ch. b. after 1850?) e. Martha b. 1843 SC
