I am most interested in getting information on Edward "called Edmond", ie: where was he born, where did he live in Scotland?..or was he Irish?I have been told that all the Allen's came from either the MacAllen or MacFarlane families.I'm now trying to verify which one.Any informtion you can give me would be very helpful.Thank you in advance, Karen
