I have gone through my notes and cannot find a James Allen or a James Robert Bright. I have 6 or 7 James Bright's but they don't have the correct birth date or place. My group was primarialy in Shelby County with some in Ohio County, Fayette County, and Montgomery County. I can find none in Carroll or Hart County. All my men are tied to Albertus and Patience Hopkins Bright through 2 of their sons, Tobias and Hopkins. They had 2 additional sons, Albert and Lewis that I know nothing about. I'll keep my eyes out for your man. Who knows? Strange things happen all the time. Good luck and maybe we'll get lucky.
