BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH from HISTORY OF ST. CLAIR COUNTY
REV. WILLIAM ALLINGTON, farmer, Section 6, P.O. St. Clair, is a son of Richard and Elizabeth (Baird) Allington. He was a native of England and she was born in Scotland. They came to this county in 1830. He was a soldier at Ft. Gratiot and helped build the fort there and served out three terms of enlistment. He bought land in this town in 1835, then a wilderness, cleared the land and made his farm and lived here until his death, December 15, 1875. His wife died in June, 1843. He was one of the earliest settlers here, and was always active in church work. William B. Allington, his son, was born in the town of China, on the farm where he now lives February 21, 1937. He was brought up and attended school here and prepared for the ministry. He afterwards engaged in preaching for ten years in the conference, in regular work, but on account of his health had to give up regular preaching and engage in farming. Is still in the local work. He owns 180 acres of land, and lives on the old homestead. In 1861, he married Mary J. St. Clair, a native of this county. She died in 1872 and left four children--Frederick, Richard, John and George. In 1874, Mr. Allington married Miss Lucy Atchison, a native of New Brunswick.
