"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 28, No 6, p 23, Feb. 1, 1872.
At Dakota, Wis., Jan. 9th, 1872, Allen Prentice, aged 65 years, 11 months, and 28 days. The deceased embraced religion in his youth, under the influence of the Presbyterian church. At the age of 21 years, he took up his residence at Persia, Cattaraugus Co., N. Y., where at the age of 27, he was united in marriage to Miss Eliza Babcock. When about thirty years of age, he was led to investigate the subject of the Sabbath, and the scriptural doctrine of immersion for baptism, and becoming convinced that his early teachings were wrong, he embraced the true Sabbath, and was baptized and received into the Seventh-day Baptist Church of Persia, by Eld. Walter B. Gillette.
In 1845, he moved to Johnstown, Wis., and in 1852 he took up his residence in Dakota, where he lived an honored and useful citizen up to the time of his death. As a Christian, he was active and faithful in the discharge of duty, and zealously devoted to the interests of the church; and these qualities, with a ripe experience and an unwavering faith in God’s promises, made him emphatically a pillar of the church of God. His oft-repeated prayer, “that he might so order his life that in death he might be like a shock of corn fully ripe and fit for his Master’s use,” was fully realized.
The day of his decease he had been about his chores until 7 o'clock in the evening, when he complained of feeling ill, and at 9 1/2 o'clock, while sitting in his chair by the stove, he expired, without a struggle.
