John Supler Allum
Birth: Apr. 15, 1838
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 6, 1921
Jasper County
Iowa, USA

Born in Greene County, Pennsylvania in 1838, John was the first of nine children of Jonathan Allum, 1817-1889, and Ellisabeth Supler, 1811-1893. At age 20 he married Elisabeth Loar . When in their late twenties, John and Elisabeth migrated from Greene County, Pennsylvania to Jasper County, Iowa bringing with them Hester Matilda Ann, Sarah "Emma" Jane, and James Newton. Additional children Mary Martha Belle, Flossie "Edna," and Elizabeth "Pearl" were born in the vicinities of Newton and Kellogg.

John and Elisabeth farmed in rural Jasper County, retiring to the town of Kellogg in the 1880s where they celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1908.

Years 1886 to 1903 witnessed marriages: Hester to Thomas Burnfiel; James to Anna Bowermaster; "Emma" to William Hill; Mary to Leander Guessford; "Edna" to William Sheehan (later to Alexander Lepard); and "Pearl" to Glenn Quaintance (then Stephen Copley, then Henry Borneman). While Hester, James, Mary and Edna spent their lifetimes in Jasper County, Emma and Pearl, with husbands and families, migrated west living in both Idaho and California.

A respected couple, John and Elisabeth were founders and members of the Disciples of Christ Church, Kellogg. They died two years apart John in 1921, Elisabeth in 1923 and share a stone at Our Silent City Cemetery. Children Hester, James and Edna are in the same cemetery, and daughter Mary is at Union Cemetery, Newton. --DeeAnna
