Mrs James Allen The subject of this brief notice was the mother of our fellow townsman William Allen, and sister of County Judge A. Cassell of Florid. Her maiden name was Rossannah Cassell, born in West Hanover, Dauphin county, PA., March 16, 1816, being at her death in the 75th year of her age. She was married to James Allen in her Pennsylvania home in 1834. Two years later her parents and family emigrated to the west and located in Putnam county, and Mr. Allen and wife followed them 10 years later, here they have lived since 1846, on the farm they owned and tilled near Florid. Mrs. Allen lived and died, and for seven years a widow, residing with her son Owen W. Allen. She joined the Wesleyan Methodist connection and manifested in her life, conduct and through out the affairs and duties of her humble sphere of usefulness the graces and principles of the Christian character and life. Five of her eight children survive - William of Henry, Mrs. J. Umbarger and Eliza Forney both of Melvin, Ford county, Cora Eberly of Lostant and O. W. Allen of Florid. The funeral was held at the house, Rev. Bliss of Magnolia officiating on Monday, the interment being in the Florid cemetery
