James Alison (or Allison) was born about 1812 at Leith, details unknown. He married Jane Skeoch Smith and they had 4 known children. They were shown in the 1851 UK census at Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, and 1861 census at Stranraer, Wigtownshire - if indeed these are the same people. Identification is uncertain.
Both spellings - Alison and Allison - were found without consistency, maybe due to someone's horrible handwriting.
