James Newton Allum
Birth: Jun. 14, 1862
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1905
Jasper County
Iowa, USA

Married in 1858, James' parents, John Supler Allum, 1838-1921, and Elisabeth Loar, 1840-1923, had not been married three years when Abraham Lincoln became President and the Civil War descended upon the country. When James joined the family in 1862 he already had a sister older by two years, Hester Matilda Ann. With time, four more sisters followed. While James, his elder sister Hester and younger sister Sarah "Emma" had been born in Greene County, Pennsylvania, his three younger sisters arrived after the family migrated to Jasper County, Iowa in 1867 when James was only five.

The only male child among five female siblings, James did follow in his father's footsteps becoming a farmer. In 1893, at age 31, he married lovely Anna Bowermaster of Jefferson County, Iowa. James was destined for additional feminine company when his only child, daughter Agnes Kathryn was born in 1894. Married only seven years, Anna passed on in the year 1900 at age 31, leaving James to care for young "Katie." James, however, followed Anna in death five short years later, in 1905, at age 42. Tuberculosis claimed both lives.

The family of three James, Anna, daughter Agnes Kathryn "Katie" (later the wife of Charles Elmer Kent) are in Silent City Cemetery. Katie, too, succumbed at the young age of 44 in 1939. --DeeAnna
