Dr. Orlenzer Allen, son of Abram and Dorcas Allen, was born in Alfred, N. Y., March 17, 1826. He moved with his parents in 1842, to Milton, Wis., and on Dec. 30, 1847, he was married to Miss A. E. Coon. In the same year he professed hope in Christ and was baptized into the Milton Seventh-day Baptist Church of which he continued a member. He died April 5, 1883, of pleuro-pneumonia, after five days illness, aged 57 years, and 19 days. The second day after his attack, in response to an urgent call, he arose, and with help, dressed and rode a mile to minister to a sick family, and returning exhausted, laid him down to die. He graduated from the Rush Medical College of Chicago in 1856, and commenced the practice of medicine in Austin, Minn., where he continued fourteen years, and gained a high reputation. In 1870, on the death of his parents, he removed to Milton and occupied the house they left. He was a physician of unusual skill; a man of stern integrity, moral courage and frankness, and wherever he lived, he maintained his Sabbath principles inviolate. He leaves a widow and three sons, and joins three children who have gone before. He leaves also three brothers - Dea. L. Allen, of Milton Junction, Pres. J. Allen, of Alfred University, and Judge Ormanzo Allen (twin brother), of Austin, Minn., and a sister Mrs. Emeline Wood, of Albert Lea, Minn. The funeral services were held in the Milton Junction Seventh-day Baptist church, on Sabbath, April 7th. Sermon by the pastor from Gen. 5: 24, "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him." Rev. E. M. Dunn officiated at the house, and Revs. W. C. Whitford, V. Hull, R. C. Bond, and H. Hull, followed with appropriate remarks, after the sermon. Thus was laid away to rest, one highly honored, and who will be greatly missed in this country.
