George Allan, son of Robert and Anna [McClure] Allan, was born in Irving [Irvine, North Ayrshire], Scotland, Dec. 6, 1881 . At the age of two years he came with his parents and sister Margaret to the United States.
He was one of a large family, surviving him are three brothers and one sister. They are Thomas of Jerome, Mrs. William Hardy also of Jerome, Alfred of Guthrie Center, and William of Ottumwa.
He was married to Mary [Frances] Gump in 1904 [December 27, 1903], she passed away in 1932. Six children were born of this union, two dying in infancy. Mourning his departure are Edmond of Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, Mrs. Ethel Villa of Lake Crystal, Minnesota, Ralph of Mankato, Minnesota and Mrs. Dorothy Randolph of Centerville. There are three grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
In 1942 he was married to Lois Brown of Ottumwa, and they resided in Eddyville until her death in 1951. He then went to Lake Crystal, Minn., to make his home with his daughter.
He came to Christ twenty-five years ago and was received into the assembly at Jerome and has been in full fellowship ever since. He daily read the Bible and continued to admonish his children to seek the Savior he knew so well.
“The Lord giveth; and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
