My GrGrGrandfather was James Allan, a Farmer in Slamannan, Stirlingshire, about 20 miles from Lanark, nr Falkirk.He lived there in 1868.I do not know whether he was a tenant or owner. I know that the Allans were numerous - I am stuck at James - but could there be a connection with your Kin? James was married to Mary Jane Glafoy. They produced sons Joseph (m, Margaret Miller) and Thomas. Joseph had sons Robert, Joseph, William (m. Mary Cable), John and Fraser(m. Kathleen Brantigan). Ours is difficult research!
