  • Notes 
    • Note from Julie Junes
      After the deaths of Spencer Allen and Margaret Potter in 1864 & 1868, the lives of their children changed.
      Robert Allen and Rachel Allen were both married and remained in Ross Twp. Elizabeth Ann Allen married in 1869 shortly after her parents death and remained in Ross Twp and later moved to Temiskaming.
      The single children, James, Margaret, Melinda "Linda", & William moved to USA.
      During this time period, Robert Allen's first wife Ann Levingston died in 1872.
      He remarried in 1873 to Agnes McLaren. His daughter, Julia Jane Allen by wife #1 went with her aunts Melinda and Margaret to live in Michigan, USA and is found in the
      1880 US Federal Census living with her aunts. Interestingly, Julia Jane Allen returned to live in Cobden and married James Hannah. When Gertrude Julia Livingston married Frank Taylor in Cobden, Julia Jane Hannah was a witness to the marriage.
