Mr. Allen was born in Marion County, Illinois January 31, 1876 and was married to Gertrude A. Sweaney of Alamosa, Colo. in 1911. They spent the next two years in traveling and came to Bentonville where they lived for a year and after purchasing a farm in the Miller community moved to it. He then took up teaching and taught until 1927 when he resumed his former work as a traveling salesman.
