Amariah Frost Allen

Word was received Sunday over the wire that A. F. Allen, former banker and prominent citizen of Blairstown, passed away at Ames. This was a shock to his many friends in Blairstown who had known and loved him in his many years here. He came to Blairstown in 1869 and in 1880 opened a private bank which was later incorporated and called the Benton County Bank. About ten years ago he sold his interest because of failing health and retired.
