History of Chippewa Valley
Published 1891-2

Cyrus A. Allen, farmer, P.O. Pepin, was born in Lincoln, Vt., August 27, 1841 and is the only son of Benjamin Allen.

He attended a select school in Madison, Wis., and Platteville academy. At eighteen years of age he engaged in mercantile business at Pepin.

In June, 1861, he received a recruiting commission and spent considerable time and money in trying to organize a company of volunteers. About eighty men in all enlisted, but before the company was completed some of the the men wandered off aznd either engaged in business or entered other companies of soldiers, and in October he disbanded the balance and entered Company G, Sixteenth Wisconsin, and served two years, participating in the siege and battle of Corinth, battle of Shiloh and several minor engagements.

He became second lieutenant and afterward (September 3, 1862), first lieutenant of his company. While home on a furlough in the fall of 1862 he recruited sixteen men. He resigned on account of disability, but in 1864 enlisted for the navy, but was not accepted.

After the war he was again engaged in mercantile business from 1866 to 1868; from 1869 to 1872 he ran on the river with timber.

Since 1873 he has been engaged in farming in this and St. Croix counties. He purchased his present farm in 1886, and has resided upon it since that time.

In June 1869, he married Miss Margaret J. Guthrie, and they have three sons: Cyrus O., Alex G. and Rupert B.

Mr. Allen is independent in politics, having formerly sustained the democratic, but in late years the republican party. He took the census of Pepin township in 1890. He is a member of Benj. Allen Post, G.A.R. of Arkansaw, Wis.
