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 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).
