    Numbered among the leading professional men of Cambridge City, Wayne County, is Dr. J. B. Allen, whose residence here dates back to October 1897. The eldest of the four children of Jacob and Martha (Brown) Allen, he was born on the old family homestead, in Jefferson Township, Wayne County, in 1844. ...

    ... Dr. Allen supplemented his common school education by a course of study in the Hagerstown Academy, and later he attended Delaware University. Then for some time he engaged in teaching, being employed in the schools of Williamsburg, Milton, Centerville and Decatur, Indiana, as superintendent. He has been agent of the Adams Express Company at Hagerstown since 1886, and since 1878 he has been connected with the firm of Allen & Company, druggists, of the same town. Having pursued the study of medicine, and graduating in the Ohio Medical College, at Cincinnati, in 1881, he established himself in practice in Hagerstown, where he continued actively engaged in professional work until his removal to Cambridge City, a year and a half ago. He served as a township trustee for five years in succession, and was a member of the pension board during Cleveland's last administration. Though exercising the right of franchise, as every citizen should, he has never devoted much time to politics.

    On Christmas day, 1872, Dr. Allen and Miss Ellen Starr were united in marriage, and one child, Harry S., blesses their union. ...
