28th August 2003William Wilson Allan (Allen) - Rorke's Drift
By Barry Jackman
I am working on our family tree.
Agnes Allan (nee Ledingham) Templeton (born in 1884) had Allan as her middle name to honour W. W. Allan who, it is said by one family member, was related. The mother of Agnes Allan was Anna Maria Rogers Brown.
My task is to figure out how?
Does anybody know if W. W. had any brothers or sisters?
W. W. and his wife Sarah Ann Reeves had 7 children. One is listed on his tombstone - Jessie, who died at the age of 1 year, but I can't read all the details from the photo posted on the website?

Thanks for your help
