Samuel M. Allen was born in Scott county, Missouri, February 3, 1854. He died
at Geary, Oklahoma December 4, 1916; age 62 years, 10 months and 4 days.
At the age of 18 he moved to Howell county, Missouri, where in 1879 he was
married to Mary A. Galloway. To this union four children, all boys were born,
all of whom are living and were present at the funeral. They are Oscar J.
Allen, El Paso, Tex., William S. Allen, El Paso, Tex., Fletcher M. Allen,
Houston, Tex., Roy Allen, Geary, Okla.
From the time of his attainment to the age of manhoodto the time of his removal
from the state, he was prominent in political and religious affairs. He was a
member of the Baptist church for more than a third of a century and always
fulfilled his obligations as a Christian gentleman.
In 1899 he left Missouri with his family and moved to Geary, Oklahoma where he
has since resided. During the 17 years residence of Mr. Allen in this city he
has always been closely identified with the upbuilding and betterment of the
community and the country, and too much cannot be said of the man. Suffice that
he has earned and retained the admiration and respect of an entire community and
that his death is universally mourned by all who knew him.
