Birth: Jun. 5, 1805, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1887, USA

From a plat book of Morgan County Illinois
Stephen G. Allis was born in Georgia, Franklin county, Vermont January 5th 1805. At the age of fifteen he commenced learning the trade of a tanner, and currier, which business, however, he followed only for a few years. In the spring of 1838, he came to Morgan county, and for one year remained three miles south of Jacksonville, when he settled on section 26, township 13, range 8, where he has since resided. Mr. Allis was married, December 28, 835, to Miss Ann Chapin, of Newport, New Hampshire. They had by this union six children; all of them died in infancy.

"Those precious gems of earthly love,
Were early called to realms above."

Mr. Allis has made farming a specialty since he has been a citizen of Morgan county. His motto is, "That which is worth doing at all is worth doing well." He had taken a prominent part in sustaining all institutions, both moral and intellectual, which tend to ameliorate and elevate the condition of our race. His purity of life and disinterested Christian benevolence, his system and method as a practical business man, coupled with his domestic virtues, are among the traits by which he is known and appreciated among his numerous acquaintances, who can best estimate his worth. He is a good practical farmer, and has been quite successful. A fine view of his residence may be seen elsewhere in this work.
