James Allen Keith was born 12-16-1824 Buncombe Co., NC, the son of William Keith and Sarah Allen. He died 5-19-1895. He was indeed the cousin of Col. Lawrence Martin Allen (1832-1908). In 1991 Blue & Gray magazine ran a very good article on the Shelton Laurel massacre which had a lot of detail on both Keith and Allen.
