Seeking ancestry and wife's name of James Allen, father of Margaret Allen (per Lee Gandee) who m. Jacob Nease (b. 1754 Camping Creek, Little Mountain, SC). There is a James Allen documented in deed records in Edgefield (present day Saluda Co.) with land on Richland Creek branch of Little Saluda River. This James was son of Josiah Allen and had widow named Elizabeth. I am trying to establish if James Allen of Richland Creek was same James Allen who was father of my Margaret Allen who married Jacob Nease. Jacob and Margaret were parents of William Kneece. William A. Allen may be connected to James Allen of Edgefield Co.
