I am searching for info on a John F. Allard. Possibly married to a Lavanda Victoria Jones. They had 8 children, Ozela, Howard, Edna, Alice, Myrtle, Thurman, John and Laird. Thurman (1906-1985) being my grandfather. Story has it that three Allard brothers came over from England, two settled in the north and one in the south. I am supposedly a decendent of the southern Allard. There might also be a tie in to the former Allard plantation in New Orleans. I am not sure if they were Britsh, Scotish or even French; I'm leaning more towards Britsh.
