Excerpt from the Union County Courier, February 8, 1888, page 3, column 3:

"We are called upon again, to chronicle the death of one of our old pioneers of this county. Mr. Solomon Allen, who died yesterday, morning at his residence three miles east of town. Mr. Allen has been totally blind for over forty years, but has been an active and prosperous farmer of this county for over twenty years. A few years ago he had secured a competence for himself and his wife, sold his farm retaining 10 acres upon which he built a fine residence and resigned active farming operations, and lived upon the interest of his savings. He had been quite feeble for some time and his demise was not unexpected."
