MACHAN JAMES A
2ND RANGER BN
Allen Machan (He apparently went by Allen) was nephew to my Grandmother Genevieve Geddes. I was told as a child he died at D-Day but they didn't know any more details. His dad is Andrew Machan and mom is Hazel-Mae Machan, nee Goodman. Allen was born in Canada, as was his dad. His mom was born in Iow
