JOHN H. ALLYN
John H. ALLYN, of the firm of Allyn Brothers, bankers and dealers in real estate, is a native of Illinois, born in DeWitt County in the town of Clinton, September 7, 1849, the fifth child in the family of Henry and Emily (FORMAN) ALLYN. Mr. ALLYN passed his boyhood days in his native county, receiving a good education in the common schools. At the age of sixteen years he accompanied his mother, a widow, to Ringgold County, Iowa. He was reared to agricultural pursuits, but on reaching manhood he embarked in the dry-goods and grain business at Redding, Ringgold County, which he followed for four years. He then, in May, 1886, became associated with his brother, George S. ALLYN, in the Mount Ayr Bank and real-estate business at Mount Ayr. Mr John H. ALLYN also represents several good fire-insurance companies: Germania, Continental Union of California and Commercial Union.
Mr. ALLYN was married in September, 1882** to Miss Josie FERGUSON of Worth County, Missouri, a daughter of John M. FERGUSON of Grant City, Missouri, where he was late judge of the Probate Courts. Mr. and Mrs. ALLYN are the parents of one son, Elton. Mr. ALLYN in his religious views is an Episcopal Methodist.
NOTE: John and Josie would later have two more children: Roe J. and Vivian O. (male).
**Family history from Grace Anguscile (Ferguson) Steiger lists their marriage on 19 Sep 1883.
Some time after Josie's death in 1906, John apparently remarried to Pearle Good.
