"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 31, No 5, p 3, Jan. 28, 1875.
In Milton, Wis., Jan. 12th, 1875, suddenly, Abram Allen, in the 76th year of his age. The deceased was born in Charlestown, R. I., March 22d, 1799. He embraced the Bible Sabbath when about fifteen years of age, hopefully experiencing religion at this time, but making no public profession. Three years late he removed to Allegany Co., N. Y., with the other members of his father's family. He was married Jan. 9th, 1822, by Eld. Amos Satterlee, to Dorcas Burdick, daughter of Ethan and Esther (Stillman) Burdick. In 1838, under the ministry of Eld. John Green, he united by baptism with the 1st Alfred Church, where he continued his membership until his death.
In 1842 he removed with his family to Milton, which has since been his home, with the exception of a short residence in Minnesota. The deceased was a worthy and useful member of society, a man of industrious habits, a lover of learning, a lover of peace, a companion of the good, cheerful, upright and conscientious, a faithful husband and father, and a friend and patron of religion. He was a man of deeds rather than of words. In early life he taught for six successive Winters in the public schools of Allegany Co., N. Y. He was also made an Examiner of Teachers, and an Inspector of Common Schools. He became also a surveyor of lands, and was much employed in this responsible work, both East and West.
He sought for his children the advantages of a liberal education, and was rewarded by seeing them occupy credibly eminent positions in the learned professions and in the church. The deceased was not broken by age, but was sprightly and industrious, and ever attentive to his invalid companion. Still harnessed for the battle of life, he dropped down suddenly in death, like a good soldier, and has gone to his rest and his reward. His funeral was largely attended by sympathizing neighbors, on Sabbath morning, Jan. 16th, at the Seventh day Baptist Church, and a sermon preached on the occasion by the pastor, from John 16: 83.
