Hi Fred, thank you for responding. I have looked and looked for anything on him. I'm not sure where he was before his marriage to Elizabeth in 1867. I do have the 1871 census and the one mentioned about is correct. What makes it difficult is there are other Allen/Allan's in the area there and I can't tell if they are related or not. In my ancestors book Letters from Bruce it even mentions a McCallum buying land, but is this person related to my Jane McCallum? I can find nothing. I purchased find my past so I could look at Ireland records and yes I find a lot of Thomas Allan's but are they my relative? IDK. Very frustrating to have such a common name.
Again thank you for responding.
