I'm researching my family history and my great great grandfather was Benjamin H Allard.He married my great great grandmother Rectina L Rice in Illinois on 9/5/1875.They had 5 or 6 children together: Bertha E. Allard 1876, Ethel Allard 1878, Daisy M Allard 9/1882, George? Allard 1886, Hazeldean Allard 5/18/1889, and Edith Pearl Allard 4/1893.
The census shows that Benjamin H Allard was born in approx 1849 or 1850.He was born in Canada-Eng and his parents were both born in Canada.If anyone has any information on who his parents are, I would greatly appreciate it!I've had a difficult time finding him other than in IL and NE from 1870-1900.Rectina Allard's census shows that she's a widow in 1900 in IL. The census I found Benjamin H Allard and George Allard in Nebraska for 1900 says that he's divorced.The first 3 kids were born in IL, the last 3 in Nebraska.
Any information that anyone might have on Benjamin or Rectina would be greatly appreciated!
