Biography of Allen Beall
Lincoln, St Joseph County, IN Biographies





Allen Beall was born in Franklin county, Ohio, June 6, 1820. His parents, Joseph and Catharine (Blout) Beall, were natives of old Virginia's shore. He was reared on a farm; his educational advantages were limited to the common schools of the country, which were held in rude log cabins, where sometimes the ground served as the floor, and slab seats, greased paper window lights, a large fireplace, almost the full width of the cabin, and a stick chimney were employed. Columbus at that time was but a small town of about 600 inhabitants. In 1832 his parents moved with him to Noble county, Ind., where he spent years of toil on the frontier. In 1866 they moved to Missouri, where they lived about two years, following milling. He then came to this county, where he has since resided, engaged in farming. He was married Feb. 2, 1844, to Angelina Lee, daughter of Martin and ---- (Kelly) Lee. She was a cousin of Gen. Robert E. Lee, so eminent in the Southern army in the last war. Five children were born to them, of whom 4 are living, viz.: Rayon, B. H., next mentioned, D. W. and Helen L., now wife of P. Byers. Mr. Bell's grandfathers, Beall and Blout, were both soldiers in the Revolutionary war. Mr. B. owns a farm of 240 acres.
