I have been researching my Allan branch of the family for a few years now and not getting any further forward (or backward as the case may be) - I am researching Jane Allan b. 1835 her parents were John Allan & Isabella Hamilton.Jane had a sister Martha b. 1845 (married Thomas Gilchrist 1863) a sister Marion b. 1850 and a brother Thomas b. 1843. There may be additional siblings I haven't come across yet. I would be pleased to hear from anyone with an interest in this family.
