Biographical history

Robert Kellock Allan, 1862-1942, was born in Ontario. He worked for the Inland Revenue Department in Winnipeg as a customs collector, 1881-1885. He served with the 90th Winnipeg Rifles in the 1885 Riel Rebellion (North West Rebellion), and fought at the Battle of Batoche. He subsequently lived in Grafton, Minnesota and Strathcona, Alberta before settling in Ponoka in 1900, where he ran a hardware store. He married Mary Jane Hendry, ?-1920, also from Ontario, and they had four children, Donald Hendry, 1902-?, Fred, Margaret (Thomson) and Elizabeth Kellock, 1899-? (who died in infancy). He moved to Edmonton in 1920.
