PAST FOUR SCORE YEARS
Ogden Allen, A Well Known Resident, Passed Away Monday Night
Ogden Allen, one of Otsego's oldest and most highly respected residents, died at his home on Franklin street at 11 o'clock Monday evening. The Tuesday night previous he suffered a stroke of paralysis, and gradually grew weaker until the end came. He died in that quiet, peaceful way that had characterized his entire life. Ogden Allen was born in Marion, Wayne county, N. Y., November 12, 1830, being past 82 years of age. He came to Michigan in 1860, and for years clerked in the corner store owned by Willard Higgins. November 24th, 1870, he was married to Miss Anna Abbott at Westfield, N. Y., and their entire married life has been passed here. Two children were born to them— Mrs. Jennie Tucker being the only survivor. One son, Rich Allen, died in 1900. Mr. Allen was always an active man, and was especially devoted to the church. In early life he joined the Methodist church and always remained true to its teachings. In an early day he was leader of the choir and for years was superintendent of the Sunday school. He was always found at church until deafness made It impossible for him to hear the word. He is survived by his beloved wife and only daughter, together with a host of friends who held him in high esteem for his sterling worth and his spotless life, which for more than half a century has been passed in this community. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon conducted by his former pastor and friend. Rev. E. A. Tanner. Before his death when he knew the end was near he selected the following as bearers—P. G. Hoag, J . H. Beebe, M. L. Carrington, M. Sperry. Interment was made in Mountain Home cemetery.

From The Otsego Union April 24, 1913.
