    Viola A. Brown was born in Berlin, Wis., July 19, 1851. She was a daughter of Jerry and Anna Merrill Brown. So far as is known there are only two living out of a large family of brothers and sisters, a brother Algenon, and a sister Ellen, who resides in California. A brother, Albert, died in Hammond, La., September 24, 1916. Two half brothers, Philip Brown of Milwaukee and Dr. Mark L. Brown of Fort Atkinson, Wis., and a half sister, Mrs. Dolly Bennett of Lima, Wis., survive her.
    Mrs. Allen was a firm believer in God as her Father and in Jesus Christ her Saviour. In her girlhood she publicly confessed Christ and became a member of the Seventh-day [Baptist] church of Berlin, Wis. Later her membership was transferred to the Utica church and then to the church of her faith at Milton Junction.
    September 26, 1877, she was united in marriage to Asher D. Allen. The first three years of their married life was spent at Utica, Wis. They then moved to the farm east of Milton which was their home until six years ago when they moved to Milton Junction which has since been their home.
    For more than four years Mrs. Allen has been in failing health, part of the time being confined to the house. She never completely rallied from a severe illness which prostrated her a year ago. On the morning of October 5, 1916, she entered into rest leaving in loneliness and sorrow her husband who has so tenderly cared for her in her days of sickness and distress.
    Farewell services were held at her late home Sabbath afternoon, October 7, 1916. Rev. George W. Burdick, a close friend of the family and former pastor of Mrs. Allen, assisted the pastor, Rev. Henry N. Jordan, in the services at the house and the grave. Burial was in the cemetery at Milton Junction.
