Latter-day Saint Biographical Encyclopedia
Volume 3

Allred, James Riley, a member of the Mormon Battalion, was born Jan. 28, 1827, in Bedford county, Tennessee, the son of Isaac Allred. He joined the Church at an early day and gathered with the Saints at Nauvoo, Ill. In 1846 he became an exile, together with his co-religionists, from Illinois and started for the Rocky Mountains. On the journey from Nauvoo to the Missouri river he served as a guard in Pres. Brigham Young's company. At Council Bluffs, Iowa, he enlisted in the Mormon Battalion in July, 1846, and marched with that body as a private in Company A. He was honorably discharged in California, when his term of enlistment had expired in July, 1847. Agreeable to council received from Pres. Brigham Young, he remained in California the following winter (1847-48), together with a number of his Battalion companions. During his stay there gold was discovered. In 1848 he went to Salt Lake Valley where he remained about a year and then returned with Charles C. Rich and others to Upper California. When he later again went to Utah, his constitution was greatly impaired; he located in Spring City, Sanpete county, which then became his permanent home. In 1861 he went to the Missouri river as a night guard in one of the companies sent out to bring poor Saints to the Valley. In 1863 he made a similar trip. After that he suffered with ill health until the time of his death which occurred in Spring City April 14, 1871. He died in full faith of the gospel and was highly respected by all who knew him.
