Biographical history

Susan Louisa Allison (nee Moir) was born in Ceylon. Her family moved back to England and then to Hope, British Columbia. After her marriage to John Fall Allison in 1868, she settled near Princeton, where Allison ranched, trapped, mined, and kept a trading post. Susan Allison worked with her husband for many years, and continued to manage their cattle ranch after his death in 1897. She composed poetry, native Indian tales, short stories, and a series of newspaper articles, "Early History of Princeton". Her recollections were written after she moved to Vancouver in 1928.
