THE CALLOWAY ALLEN FAMILY
Calloway and Keziah Savage
JAMES THOMAS AND ELZIRA (HUBBARD)
Allen was born in Independence. Jackson County, Missouri, January 19. 1840
and passed away at his home four miles west of Eagleville, Mo., on July 4.
1911. Aged 71 years, 5 months and 15 days. He was in poor health for some
time but bore his suffering with fortitude and patience.
He was married to Elzira Hubbard,
February 1, 1862 and to this union was born eleven children; eight sons
and three daughters. One son and one daughter passed away in infancy. The
rest are living.
He was a
man of fine character, never speaking ill of anyone, always seeing the
good qualities in his friends rather than the faults and of whom the
friends and neighbors could always say. "Blessed is the peacemaker." This
wife has lost a good true companion and his children a kind loving father
and his neighbors one whose memory will ever be remembered for his kind
words and deeds amongst them.
