Obituary of James Albert Allen
Abbeville Banner, Edition of 6 March 1868

We regret to announce the death of Mr. James A. ALLEN, one of our most esteemed fellow citizens, at his residence in our Village, last Wednesday night. The deceased was for a long time an invalid, and fell at last a victim to the slow but sure approach of the fell destroyer, Consumption.
We knew him long and well and can well bear testimony to the high integrity of his character and the blamelessness of his life. A sincere and pious Christian, a high minded and public spirited citizen, a courageous and affable gentleman, he was esteemed by a large circle of relatives and friends, by his temper and the kindness of his heart.
He had in no small measure that character which "thinketh no evil" but rejoices in truth, and reaped its natural reward in the high regard and devoted attachment of his friends. The counselor, the guide and protector of a large and dependent family, his loss to them is irreparable. The funeral services will take place at the Presbyterian church of our village at 11 o'clock this morning.
