Does anyone have an Allen Smith in their family, born in 1798 (June 6) in the town of Estill, in Hampton County, SC? His son was Joel Eason Jason Smith, who was my great-great-grandfather.
I am looking for any sort of information at all on Allen Smith or his wife Mary, or anybody else in their family. Newspaper articles, census data, anything. I am new to genealogical research. I haven't found any census record (1800-1810-1820-1830-1840) with his name on it, and I do not know who his parents were or his wife Mary's parents, or her last name. He should be on the Hampton County, SC Census for 1800 and 1810 only, and on the Wilkinson County, GA Census for 1820, 1830 and 1840.
Allen Smith was born in Estill, SC 6 June 1798
I do not know when he left the area, but 1817 seems likely
He married in 1817 (when he was 19); I do not know where.
They had their fist child in 1818, reportedly in NC
By 1819, they were in Georgia and had their second child
It appears that they lived most of their married life in Wilkinson County, Georgia, which is where Allen Smith died in 1841,.
