JAMES N. ALLEN - One of the most successful dairymen in New York State and one of the most modern and up to
date farmers, James N. Allen is also the supervisor of Vestal township, an office for which he is particularly
well qualified and chairman of the Broome County Board of Supervisors (1923).
Mr. Allen was born June 20, 1886, in Harford, Cortland county, New York, son of Albert and Hattie (Sweetland) Allen,
and since his boyhood he has been identified with farming in all its branches. His parents were successful in this
line of work, although not on the extensive scale which the son has followed. He is the owner of a three hundred
acre farm, one of the finest in Vestal, New York, and he has one hundred cows, each one of which is pure blooded.
The milk produced on this farm is certified and is all purchased by a market in New York City at fifteen cents
per quart, bottled on the farm.
Mr. Allen is widely known throughout Vestal township for his progressiveness, and he is identified with the People's
Trust Company and the City National Bank of Binghamton, New York. In politics he is a Republican, and there is
no more public spirited citizen in Vestal than Mr. Allen. He is a member of the Vestal Grange, and is ever seeking
to learn new methods and more modern ways of making the farm work easier and lighter, as well as more productive.
James N. Allen married, May 4, 1907, in Union, New York, Flora L. Pangburn, born August 16, 1888, in Binghamton,
daughter of Elmer and Almeda (Bakeman) Pangburn, and they are the parents of a daughter, Leah, born September 25,
