bullet  Noted events in his life were:

1. Property, 5 Nov 1757, Orange County, North Carolina Colony. 299,2131 Samuel Allen received a land grant from Earl of Granville for 397 acres. The grant was to William Cox in trust for Samuel. The land was in the parish of St Matthews in Orange County on both sides of Cox's Creek, the waters of Deep River.

Samuel's father John had died without a will. By English law, Samuel's brother John would inherit the land that their father had applied for, leaving nothing for Samuel. William Cox took it upon himself to apply for the land for Samuel when Samuel was 6. Perhaps William was related to Amy Cox, Samuel's grandmother.

The land grant of 397 acres was believed to be about three miles north of the Cox Settlement on the north or east side of Deep River and about 3.5 miles east of Franklinville. Cox's Creek is believed to be the first name of the present Reed Creek. Some have said that the Samuel Allen land grant was where he and his son John Allen built their homes about one mile southeast of the center of present day Ramseur on the Coleridge Road (NC Hwy 22).
