Birth: Jun. 7, 1800
Shenandoah County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jul. 1, 1892
Fulton County
Indiana, USA

Father Obed ALLEN peacefully closed his long life of 92 years at his home Friday afternoon surrounded by all of the members of his family. He was born in Virginia, June 7, 1800 and fourteen years later came to Ohio where he lived until 1828 and then moved to Missouri remaining there five years and then returned to Ohio. In 1837 he moved to Fulton county and settled in Liberty township where he resided until the California gold field inducement to the Pacific slope where he stayed three years, and then returned to this county. His first wife (Rebecca Bird Allen) died in 1857 and in 1860 he married Mrs. Mary J. MILLER, who with one daughter and three children from the first marriage, survive. He was a faithful member of the Baptist church, a true citizen, an inoffensive, cheerful neighbor and a father in the noblest sense of the term. Rev. WINANS conducted the funeral service at the Baptist church Sunday afternoon and a large concourse of people followed the remains to the grave in Oliver's cemetery.
