Mrs. Susan Warren Allin Obituary

from The Sayings, Harrodsburg, Mercer County, Kentucky

Saturday, May 22, 1897

Mrs. Susan Warren Allin, widow of the late Col. Ben C. Allin, died Thursday afternoon at 3 o’clock at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. George Reichenberg, of Louisville.  She was eighty-six years old last January, and spent most of her long and useful life in and near this place.  After the death of her venerable and lamented husband, September 1895, she removed to Louisville and took up abode with her daughter.  She was a life-long member of the Christian Church, a true Christian, a lady of refinement, and so amiable and affable that she was beloved by all who knew her.  She leaves five children to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate mother – Messrs.  Ben C., Bush W. and William B. Allin, and Mrs. Kate Wilson of Muncie, Indiana, and Mrs. Mollie Reichenberg, of Louisville.  The remains were brought here for interment yesterday, and the funeral will be conducted at the Christian Church here by the pastor, Dr. C. K. Marshall, assisted by Rev. W. T. Corn, at 11 o’clock and burial will take place in Spring Hill Cemetery.
