204 The Chariton Leader, December 5, 1961

Ayler J. Allen was born Nov. 24, 1873, the son of Tandy and Joanna Van Nice Allen, on the family farm east of Russell. He passed away at Chariton on Nov. 29, 1961, after a brief illness.

He attended the LaGrange and Russell schools until he was 17 years old, then entered Highland Park college in Des Moines. After two years, he bagan teaching school, first two years at Dickerville country school at a starting salary of $25 per month, then for three terms in Mills county. He returned to college, graduating from Highland Park in August, 1898. He was assistant principal at Fontanelle high school for a year, then returned to farming.

On October 2, 1901, he was married to Mabel Werts, and they celebrated their 60th anniversary this fall. They established their home on his parent's farm. Five children were born of whom Elizabeth, Hubert, Roger and Philip survive, Thurman having died in infancy.

With the exception of ten years on another farm nearer Russell, and two years in Fairfield where he was a partner in a farm supply store, they lived on the home farm which has been in the family since it was homesteaded in 1852, retiring and moving to Russell in 1943.

He was a life-long member of the Presbyterian church, first of the LaGrange Cumberland Presbyterian church, then of the Russell church. He was always an active and devoted member, superintendant of the Sunday school, a teacher for many years, and an elder of the church for more than 50 years.

He is survived by his wife, four children, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Of his 11 brothers and sisters, only one survives, Charles E. Allen of Portland, Oregon.

Funeral services were held at the Russell United Presbyterian church at 2:00 p.m. on Dec. 1, 1961. The Rev. John A. Orange conducted the service, and burial was in Russell cemetery.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------From the book: The John Jackson and Esther Ann Werts Family History, compiled by Philip W. Allen, 1994

Alymer Jay Allen was the tenth child of Tandy and Joanna Allen. He was born in 1873 on his father s farm in Cedar Township, near LaGrange in Lucas County, Iowa. By the time he was born, his oldest sister, Carrie, was teaching the local one-room rural school. She and sister Gertrude, having attended college, influenced Alymer to obtain an education and he graduated from Highland Park College in Des Moines, Iowa in 1898 with a major in Science. For three years he taught in Iowa schools, serving as principal at Fontanelle High School one year. In 1899 Alymer returned to farm the home place so that his father , Tandy, could retire to Russell.

In October of that year Alymer and Mabel Werts were married. She was born June 7, 1875 at Russell, IA, eleventh child of John Jackson and Esther Ann Werts. Mabel attended rural school at Ragtown and later completed a course at Parsons Conservatory of Music in Fairfield, IA. She was an excellent pianist and taught piano to private pupils in Russell until her marriage on October 2, 1901 in Russell. After their marriage, Aylmer and Mabel stayed on the Allen farm for only a year before purchasing their own farm a mile from Russell on the State Road (US 34) near Russell Corner where they built a new home in 1910. Aylmer specialized in breeding Chester White hogs, selling them as breeding stock over several states. He showed them at county and stated fairs for several years. In 1916 they sold their farm and purchased the Allen family place from his father, moving on it in 1917. The farm house, first constructed by his father in 1868 before Alymer was born, was remolded and enlarged in 1922. Mabel performed the traditional farm homemaker tasks of washing clothing using a washboard; making soap using homemade lye and animal fats; ironing with sad irons; cooking over an iron range fueled with sticks of wood; churning butter; canning vegetables, fruit, and beef; cleaning with dustcloth, mop, broom and beating rugs; sewing her own clothing and mending the family clothing; patching knees and darning socks; and many other tasks. There was rarely time for rest but they found time for music, reading, and occasional games with the children who were always encouraged to learn. Also, every morning before breakfast without fail, regardless of whatever else the day might bring, they gathered the entire family for a few minutes of Bible reading and prayer. These activities and the memory of them have had considerable influence in the later lives of their children.

Alymer studied accounting by correspondence. In 1927, he rented out the farm and moved his family to Fairfield where their oldest son, Hubert, was attending college. Alymer went into partnership with L. H. Alexander operating an agricultural feed and supply business, but the Great Depression soon led him to sell out and he returned to the farm in 1930. The business experience was costly, and with depressed farm income it took more than a decade of hard work to pay all debts. Returning to the farm, Mabel and Alymer worked, scrimped, and sacrificed through the bad years of the 1930s putting their sons through college.

In 1943 the Allens moved to Russell, leaving the farm to an operator on a share basis. However, Alymer never completely severed his attachment to the family farm, spending hours nearly every day of his retired life back there, mending fences, pulling weeds, and otherwise helping to maintain its value. The farm remained in the Allen family until it was sold in 1977, 124 years after it was homesteaded by Tandy Allen in 1853. Five original land certificates, signed by President Franklin Pierce, are still in the possession of the family.

Both Alymer and Mabel were religious people and were active in the Presbyterian Church. He served as Ruling Elder for at least 30 years and as an Iowa delegate to Presbyterian General Assembly at Indianapolis, IN, in 1923.He was on the Session of the Russell Church continuously for more than 25 years. Mabel taught Sunday Scholl and was active in Missionary and Ladies Aid Societies. Alymer also served as Russell Town Clerk in the early 1950

s, helping to bring a water system to the community. For a number of years, he was President of the Lucas County Sunday School Association. In retirement, the Allens lived across the street from the Russell Community School where their sons had attended high school. Alymer died Nov. 29, 1961 at Chariton, and Mabel lived on in poor health in the Willits Home for elderly women in Chariton and in her daughter Elizabeths home in Des Moines until her death Feb. 17, 1973 in her 98th year. Alymer and Mabel are buried, together with many others of both their families, in Russell Cemetery.
