|Birth: ||Feb. 20, 1876|
|Death: ||Nov. 23, 1934|
Samuel Justice Allen, the first born child of Artemus and Elvira Garrison Allen, was born in Salem township, Steuben county, Ind., Feb. 20, 1876, and departed this life at his home in Salem township, Nov. 23, 1934, at the age of 58 years, 9 months and 3 days.
Mr. Allen spent his entire life in the neighborhood in which he was born. On March 8, 1904, he was united in marriage to Jennie E. Clink. One son, Wendell, was born to this union. The home was soon saddened by the death of Mrs. Allen. He was married again, to Josie Deller, on July 20, 1906. This home was blessed with three daughters, Gardus Elnore, Margaret Eloise and Francis Elvira.
Mr. Allen was a man of character industrious, honest, patient and kind. He was true in his convictions, but at the same time, he was tolerant toward the sincere views of those who differed with him. He was a loving and devoted husband and father and a true neighbor. He lent his support to all forces for the betterment of the community in which he lived. Early in life he united with the Trinity church and later transferred his membership to the Salem Center Presbyterian church. To this institution he was always loyal, giving of his best to her. The churches to which he belonged recognized his faithful services and his worth by electing him to the office of an elder. The church to which he belonged suffers a great loss in his departure.
The departed leaves to mourn their loss his widow, the son, Wendell, of Hudson; three daughters, Mrs. Walter Hanna, and Mrs. Robert Greenman, of Salem township, Mrs. John Michael, of Eaton, O. three brothers, Isaac Clyde, Floyd Wayne, of Salem township, and Everett Loyd, of Toledo, O. also four sisters, Mrs. George Fatscher, of Ossian, Ind., Mrs. William Noll, of South Bend, Mrs. Earl Wolfe, of Pleasant Lake, and five grandchildren. Besides these, many friends will miss his genial presence.
Funeral services were held in the Salem Center church, the pastor officiating. Burial in the Mt. Zion cemetery.
