Re: Thomas James/Elizabeth Mace/Rachel Allen
Rachel Allen was the dau. of John Allen and wife Mary (last name unk.)She is mentioned in John's will in 1818/1821.
Thomas James was born in MD.He married his first wife, Elizabeth Mace in Dorchester, MD; after she died he married Rachel Allen in 1807 Lincoln/Tryon, NC. Elizabeth Mace's parents, Nicholas and Alice Mace lived and had all their children in Dorchester Parish, Dorchester Co., MD.
I found a Thomas James in Baltimore, MD in 1790, but not sure it is my Thomas.Haven't found him in 1800, but in 1810 he is in Lincoln Co., NC.So I don't know if he was in PA or not between MD and NC.York Co., PA and Baltimore Co., MD are right next door, so it is conceivable, the James family could be in PA.
I didn't know that there were James, Richardson's, Allen's in York Co., PA. So, more to check out!
