That first born son, Harry Ride Allport, became a ship's (saloon) steward and he was on the Luisitania when it was sunk by the Germans. He survived, but I do not believe he ever married, never had a family. After my grandfather moved to Canada, then California, Joseph made several visits from England. They believed Harry was living in San Francisco and searched for him, but never found him. My grandfather died in a small town near Modesto in July 1966. His half brother Harry R. died in San Diego one month later. The only time they met was prior to 1900 when Joseph took the two younger boys to London and they met Harry R., who was a sailor by that time.
p.s. Joseph had three brothers named Thomas, Richard, Harry (Tom, Dick and Harry). Tom and Dick died at sea from shipwrecks. Harry was shipwrecked in Alaska for a year. He caught tuberculosis and died after a second career as a harbor master in San Francisco.
