[SC] Dosye ALLEN in Barnwell

Query following the ESSENCE Article

Work I have done:
Family ties in Barnwell, SC. Researched 1860 - 1930 census.
Father - Dosye Allen born December 22, 1928
His Parents - Wm Handy Allen(b.1891/94) and Chanie Boyd Allen (b. 1863/66).
Siblings - Handy Allen, Wilson Allen, Catherine Allen Kennedy, Geneva Allen, Retha Allen, Joseph Allen, Leon Allen, Georgia Mae Allen Mitchell

I am writing my family history. They are from Barnwell, South Carolina. DNA test for my father, Dosye Allen, indicates his paternal link is the Balanta people living in Guinea-Bissau. His father, Wm Handy Allen married Chanie Boyd and lived in Barnwell, South Carolina. Chanie Boyd’s (1863/66 – 8/26/1930) father was London Boyd and mother was Sylvia Boyd according to her death certificate, all living in Four Mile, Barnwell, South Carolina. The father was listed as being from Virginia.

The 1860 US Federal Census
– Slave Schedule listed London Boyd as a slave owner in Virginia.
What slave ship did they come on?
Do you think they came directly from Africa to here?
Do you think he and his father could have been one of London Boyd’s slaves?

Correction
Dosye's mother is Etta Berry Allen not Chanie Boyd Allen. Chanie is Wm Handy Allen's mother.
