I have Abisha Camp b. 1772 York Co. SC, died 1841 Bibb Co. AL.Son of William Camp, Sr. and Rebecca Wofford (5th great aunt).There were other Camp-Wofford marriages and there were Camp-Allen marriages.With the Camps not being my direct line, I haven't followed this family too much.
Abisha Camp married Sarah Looney, I know of one child, Robert Melton Camp.Could be others.
After Sarah's death, Abisha Camp remarried to Elsie Allen b. 1802 Bibb Co. AL, died 1875 Bibb Co. AL.Married on Aug 6, 1837 Bibb Co. AL. (I will look for her in TX, wonder when she moved back to AL?)
I received information from another researcher that Elsie Allen was a widow when she married Abisha Camp and had a son William Stone Allen.Some researchers believe her husband was a Gideon Allen.
Whether her maiden name was also "Allen" is not known.There are some questions on how many times she was married.Some think that she was married to a "Stone" before she married Abisha, others say she was married to a "Hail".
Now to the Allens, my gg grandfather was Hiram Allen, b. ca 1788-1796 was married first to unk. had at least 9 children by her. There are a total of 7 sons only 2 whose names are known.Can't find anyone to claim these men.
Then he married Cynthia Wofford Cooley(gg grandmother)who had 7 children.Four of whom were sons, Columbus H. (my great grandfather); Joshua, William and David (who had a twin sister, Amanda.Twins seem to run in this Allen family.One cousin said they had accounted for 17 sets of twins in the family.).Joshua, William and David who were born bet. 1848-1853 seems to have just disappeared off the face of the earth.William was in Talladega Co. GA in 1870 in his parents household, after that, don't know what happened to him.David may have died as a young child.
Hiram Allen b. ca. 1788-1796 (this man was never sure of his age!) & Unk.'s son Isom B. Allen married Martha Wofford, believe to be younger sister of Cynthia Wofford.After Martha's death Isom B. Allen remarried to his step-sister,Doleska Cooley.
There were lots of Allens who moved to TX from AL. in my Allen line.My line moved from Jackson Co. GA to Talladega Co. AL.Others in this line moved from SC to all over GA.Others moved to Madison, Russell, Covington, Greene, Clarke & Calhoun Counties Alabama.
Some of the counties in Texas were Angelina, Cook, Dallas & Grayson.
