"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 146, No 5, p 86, Jan. 31, 1949.

William Henry Allen, son of George Franklin and Olive Burdick Allen, was born at Alfred, N. Y., July 10, 1865, the fifth of six children, all of whom preceded him in death but one sister, Mrs. Phalla Stillman of Alfred, N. Y. Mr. Allen died November 23, 1948.

November 11, 1894, he was united in marriage with Amy West of Milton, Wis., and to the union four children were born: Dr. Isaphene Allen of Anoka, Minn., Franklin and Paul of Farina, and William, the oldest child, who died in infancy. Mrs. Allen died in October, 1911.

Mr. Allen came to Farina following Mrs. Allen's death and here established the Farina Hatchery which became known through Southern Illinois as a trustworthy and dependable institution.

December 28, 1913, he was married to Mrs. Mabel Furrow. He has been a resident of Farina for thirty-seven years, and a trustworthy member and worker in the Seventh Day Baptist Church.

He had been in failing health for more than a year although, up to the very day of his death, he continued to take an interest in the hatchery and to aid some with the work.

Mr. Allen is survived, aside from the children mentioned, by his wife, fife grandchildren, one great-grandchild, two step-children: Mrs. Austin Harpster of San Diego, Calif., and Earnes Furrow of Farina, and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were conducted at the Seventh Day Baptist Church by his pastor, Rev. C. L. Hill, and burial was made in the Farina Cemetery.
