David Allen and his family were settlers of Forward Township, Allegheny Co, Pennsylvania. David was a farmer who raised stock and also operated a distillery. He was a member of the Presbyterian church at Round Hill and a Democrat in politics.
Mary Jane Warne, born Sept. 11, 1770; died July 4, 1837; married December 24, 1793, David Allen, born May 10, 1770; died December 20, 1820. Both are buried in Round Hill Cemetery.
David Allen bought all but his wife's share of Joseph Warne's home place near Sunnyside, and hence he and she had the whole farm, and some of his descendants are yet (1905) occupy their father's or mother's share. David Allen died intestate. The farm was divided among his children, John, Dorcas, James, David, Eliza, Frances, and Mary Jane. The old mansion house of Joseph Warne, built of logs or hewn timber, and afterwards occupied by his son-in-law, David Allen, until near his death, was located in the field, across the road from the old still house and a short distance below the present brick house, which the latter commenced to build in 1818, but did not finish, although he lived in it at the time of his death. The house was subsequently completed by the family in 1821. Where the old house stood a railroad station now stands. There were no other dwelling houses on the farm until it was divided. Eliza and Dorcas then built houses on their parts. Mary had a schoolhouse on her part which was later turned into a dwelling. Dorcas built the brick house on her part of the farm in 1852, where Mrs. King now (1905) resides. The old log house where the Calahan family lived was built by Bradford Allen, after he was married. This is where Gideon Wall was killed, while putting the last log in place. It is not known who built the old still house, but David Allen operated it while he lived, and after his death, his son James ran it for ten or fifteen years.
