Thomas F. Allison of Scotland married Catherine Ritchie of Scotland in Patterson, CA in c1916. They had a little girl, then Catherine died April 1919 and is buried in Patterson. Thomas could not care for the little girl and she was taken in by Jess and Anna Blue of Patterson. Baby Allison is not in the 1920 or 1930 Census. When was Baby Allison born and where did she go? I think that she married and raised a family. Thomas moved to San Joaquin Co. in 1930. This is a real mystery! I have more background information.
