James Harris W. Allen was my grt.-grt-grandfather. I believe he was born in North Carolins. I am not sure who his father and mother were.His son -George, was my grt-grandfather and Georges son Will-was my grandfather. I found some information under Sarah C. Shore ancestry. Johann Schorr. If you happen to find out -please contact me. If I happen to run across any information I will in turn contact you.
