"Allen Calvin, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of this place, died Sunday morning at his home on Court street after a long illness with liver trouble. The deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Calvin, among the early settlers of Green Township. He was born on the homestead farm east of Greenford August 19, 1842, and in consequences was a little more than 63 years of age. His education was secured in the schools of his native township and his early manhood was spent on the farm. In 1863 he went to Illinois where, with the exception of a year, he resided until 1880. He was united in marriage in 1868 to Miss Julia Reese of Pennsylvania. From this union three children resulted two of whom, Joseph V. Calvin of Ensley, Ala., and Mrs. J. Calvin Ewing of Youngstown, survive. Mrs. Calvin died in 1874. In 1860 Mr. Calvin located in Canfield, engaging in the milling business with J. S. Stafford. Seven years later he purchased the interest of his partner and had since conducted the business alone, having since 1893 owned one of the best and most modern flour mills in this section of the state. Mr. Calvin was married a second time in 1885, being united with Mrs. Mary E. Fowler, who survives him. He also leaves four sisters – Mrs. J. S. Stafford, of Canfield; Mrs. G. W. Lewis of Paris, Mo.; Mrs. W. M. Cochel of Columbia, Mo., and Mrs. J. C. Roller of Ashtabula. Politically Mr. Calvin was a democrat and as such was called to many local places of honor and trust, the duties of which he most faithfully discharged. He was a member of the Presbyterian church, Canfield lodge of Odd Fellows and a trustee of the Normal College, in which institution he always evinced the keenest interest. Funeral services held from the family residence Wednesday afternoon were conducted by Rev. Wm. Dickson, assisted by Rev. O. S. Fowler, a large concourse of sorrowing friends being in attendance. At the grave in the village cemetery the Odd Fellows had charge of the services."
