Birth: Jun. 13, 1816
Harrison County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jun. 14, 1903

From "Athens Home Coming," Athens, Ohio, 1904. (out of copyright).

David Allen was born near Cadiz, Ohio, June 13, 1816, and was a resident of Athens Township from 1847. He was descended from Scotch parents and had the love of things honestly done, which is characteristic of that people. Perhaps the most careful and studious readers of the Bible belong to the Scotch people, and Mr. Allen all his life gave attention to the reading of the Word. At the age of sixteen he had for his teacher John Welch, who afterwards became distinguished as Chief Justice of the Supreme court of Ohio. His general reading was so well kept up and his mind so well in touch with current events, that his conversation was more than usually interesting. He retained his strength well to the last, and would walk to Athens from his home in preference to riding. He died January 14, 1903.
