Birth: Aug. 26, 1796
Death: Dec. 15, 1875

Richard ALLINGTON, aged seventy-nine years, died at China December 15, 1875. He was born at Thetford, England, in 1796, and came to America in 1814, shortly after enlisting in the Untied States Army. During his enlistment, he was in the Black Hawk war and helped to build the barracks at Fort Gratiot. In 1831, he married Elizabeth Hannah, daughter of William BAIRD. After serving his country faithfully for fifteen years, in 1835 he got his discharge. He then moved to China and settled on the farm where he died. In 1845, he was left a widower with six small children. With the help of kind friends, he struggled with the ills of life with his little family till 1849, when he married Sophia BROWNING.
