Hi, I have concluded that my g.g.grandfather's brother, John Allanson, a tailor and draper in Farnworth, England, UK, emigrated to Texas and then California, in 1881.He resided at West St. Hollister, California.His wife, Ann (maiden name: Fletcher), apparently died on 22 May, 1892 as reported in 'The Free Lance' (Hollister, San Benito Co, CA).3 Sons and 1 daughter afterwards remained in the US.Other siblings remained in the UK.John Allanson's family seem to have had a business called 'ALLANSON BROS'.
John Allanson's son, John Allanson, married a Martha Clegg.A boy resulted from this marriage, on 15/12/1893. Other children were: Earnest b.1866, Edward, Ann F, Eliz.Ann, Grace, William, Mary Jane, Henry (not all lived in US).
Any information on this family, the history, descendants, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much, David
