James Allison and his son-in-law Edward Lynch had plats surveyed for land in then Berkley Co. SC (on the Enoree River; Warrior Creek) on JUly 7, 1769.
James's will dated 1778 was proved in 1784. The will names Edward's wiife Margaret and their daughter, Jean (or Jane).
The book "Allison/Ellison Scottish Cousins" records James as a son of Rev. Hector Allison (whose will did name a son James). However, this book also says that James was born in 1740, died in 1778 and his will probated in 1778. I think he must have been born some years earlier than 1740 for several reasons:
1. As he and Edward Lynch got land on the Enoree River surveyed on the same date, I think Edward and Margaret were likely alrdy married. This doesn't work if James were only 29.
2. James's will specifically names three granddaughters, all from different daughters. I seems unlikely that James could have 3 daughters already amrried when he was only 38.
I'd love to hear others research and ideas.
