None of the other names in the court case you mentioned (what was the date of the case?) are familiar - that is to say, I don't happen to have then in my database. I only have Emanuel in my data because of his wife Nancy Tucker, whose mother was Nancy Wofford.The Woffords in Spartanburg Co. SC are associated with my Woodruffand Allen lines there, so I stuck Emanuel in just in case he turned out to be a relative.I don't know Emanuel's parents.But I think there is a clue in the names from the court case you mentioned - the name Barnett Allen Jr.The Jr. implies that there was also a Sr., and Barnett is a surname associated with some of the same families.So there is probably an earlier Allen-Barnett marriage associated with the people in the court case.I have in some notes a Zachariah Allen who was mar. 1795 in Granville Co. NC to Rebecca Barnett, dau. of Thomas Barnett and Sarah Graves, but I have nothing else on this Zachariah, and he may have nothing to do with the people in Chester Co. SC.
