Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 5, 1744
Death: May 10, 1794


Son of Matthew and Ruth Allin, and brother of Gen. Thomas Allin, was born in Barrington in 1745, and, like his brother, Thomas, was an active and energetic man, interested in public affairs; was a member of the Barrington Militia Company, with so good a military training that, at the opening of the Revolution, he was chosen Captain Lieutenant (the rank of Captain) in Gen. Nathaniel Greene's brigade, Col. Church's regiment of the Army of Observation. He marched to Boston, and was in camp and service at Roxbury and Cambridge until the evacuation of Boston. His letters breathe spirit and devotion of the most heroic men of 1776. Captain Allin continued in the militia service for a considerable part of the war, but was occupied principally with personal and public business. He represented the town in the General Assembly in the year 1788.
Capt. Allin died May 10, 1794, in the 50th year of his age. His widow, Bathsheba, died Sept. 19, 1789. Both are buried in the Allin yard.

Married (1) Elizabeth TIFFANY, 1767; m. (2) Bathsheba PECK; m. (3) Molly HALL; no children of record. Matthew was a Captain in the Revolution.
