  JAMES ALLAN, one of Poland township's most substantial agriculturists and highly respected citizens, who resides on a fine farm of 139 acres located in section 28, was born on a farm in Scotland, Nov. 5, 1849, and is a son of John and Margaret (Duncan) Allan, who were prosperous farmers of that county.
     James Allan was reared on his father's farm, and at maturity he married Jennie Ferguson, a daughter of Peter and Margaret (Doick) Ferguson, after which he engaged in farming in his native country until 1882, when he brought his family to America and settled at Struthers, Ohio.  He soon found employment in the agricultural regions and spent the first seven years in Mahoning County, working for Walker Kennedy, after which he worked an adjoining farm belonging to Mrs. Goodhue, for two years on shares.  He next located on the James Pence farm in Poland Center, for eight years, after which he took charge of a farm in Boardman township, for Mrs. Samuel Hines.  This farm was about one mile west of Poland and was in a very poor condition, yielding a very small crop the first year, but through his excellent management it was placed in a good state of cultivation, and he remained there for eight years.  In 1903, Mr. Allen purchased his present farm from James McCollough, which was originally the old Hugh Dobbins farm.
     Mr. and Mrs. Allan have six children, there of whom were born in Scotland, and three in this country: John; Jeanette, who married Alfred Flowers of Poland township, has two children, Burt and Marjory; Maggie, who lives at home; James, Jr.; Rachel, who lives at home; and Peter, who is a student in the Poland Union School.  Mr. Alban's two sons, John and James, make a specialty of raising Shropshire sheep.  Mr. Allan is a member of the U. P. Church at Struthers.
