ALLEN, Sarah “Sally” Gleaves died March 11, 1862

Died at her home in Warren County, Ky., on the 11th of March, 1862, Mrs. Sallie Allen, wife of Mr. Nathan Allen, and for many years a most exemplary member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

Sister A. was born in Wythe Co., Va., and lived to the ripe old age of 72 years and 19 days.  Professing religion at Marrowbone, Cumberland Co., Ky., more than 30 years ago, under the ministry of A. Chapman, W. Harris and our now venerable Bro. C. Weeden, and trained under the ministry of these faithful brothers, her piety was that of the old Cumberland type; that is deep, earnest, and yet unostentatiously quiet.

The writer, for years intimate with the family, and often visiting the departed in her long affliction, remembers, with melancholy pleasure, the many seasons of holy Christian communion enjoyed with the now broken household.  Her house was the preacher's home.

Pasted into her husband's Bible is a copy of her printed obituary.  The newspaper it appeared in is unknown.
