I have been researching James Allen b. 1757, d. 7 November, 1829 in Maury County Tennessee. Several family trees indicate that he married Mary Tomlinson November 1780. However, in those same trees they list a source of that marriage from “Virginia Marriage Records 1660-1800”. But, the record that they reference says that a James Allen married a Mary Herniche on 17 Nov 1780 in Rockingham County Virginia, not Mary Tomlinson. Can anyone shed some light on this discrepancy?
