William Allan and wife Martha Sugden took a homestead in Clow Township in 1880. They moved to the farm immediately west of Hallock in 1890. In 1898 a nephew, William Welsey "Bill" Sugden, came west from Ontario to work for them. They sold this farm to him in 1905 when he married Martha Cameron. All the Sugden names presently in the Hallock area trace to Bill. Benjamin, a brother to Bill also moved to Hallock in 1905. He married and had five children, no descendants presently live in the area. William and Martha Allan moved on to another farm in Bronson, then retired to Hallock about 1912. Their daughter Mary married Alfred Erickson later in life. Their youngest daughter Margaret married Charles Johnson who worked in the bank in Hallock. Their family moved to Minneapolis. William and Martha Allan are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery in an unmarked grave.
