My grandparents John Scott Allen was born at sea coming from Ireland (date unknown) and was named after the Captain of the ship, and Elizabeth Allen (Fraser, maiden name), was born in Ontario, Canada (date unknown). They made their home in Hornings Mills, Ontario on a farm. The home place remained in the family until their son, Donald, passed away around 1975. They had a family of 8 children, 5 of whom remained living in Ontario. The names of the children were: William (Bill), Agnes, Athol, Jack, Don, Jean, David (my Dad), and Helena. Elizabeth Fraser had a brother who worked as a lumberjack on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
