Sounds like it is not Sheila Eileen Ross Allard after all. Not to worry. Yes Allard is quite common in Canada due to its French origin I believe. Not that I can get that far back with my tree, I only get to 1773 in Suffolk, Uk. Thanks for all your assistance though. Really was much appreciated.

That really is interesting thank you very much indeed. Much appreciated indeed. So she obviously lived in Port Alberni for most if not all her life.
Thanks again.
