MRS. LEVO ALLBAUGH, This lady is a highly respected resident of Charleston Township, and the widow of Allery Allbaugh, who departed this life. Jan. 15, 1866. Mrs. A. owns and occupies a comfortable homestead on section 8, and since the death of her husband has carried on the business of the farm in a wise and judicious manner. She is a native of Delaware, born July 4, 1827, and the daughter of Samuel and Ellen (McCabe) Campbell, natives of the same State. They were reared and married in Delaware, and afterward removed to Preble County, Ohio, where the father died. The mother of our subject still survives, and resides in Kansas, having attained the advanced age of eighty-nine years. The parental household included nine children, of whom Mrs. A. was the fourth in order of birth.
Mrs. Allbaugh was only nine months old when her parents removed from Delaware to Preble County, Ohio. She received careful home training and a good education in the public schools, and remained with her parents until her marriage, which occurred in Preble County, Ohio, Oct. 9, 1816. Her husband, Allery, was a son of Stephen and Nancy (Potters) Allbaugh, natives of Pennsylvania, and was born in Butler County, Pa., Feb. 20, 1818. They remained in Preble County after their marriage for about eight years, during which time Mr. Allbaugh was engaged in hotel-keeping and mercantile pursuits. In 1851 they removed to Iowa and located in Keokuk, where they remained for two years. Mr. A. then purchased eighty-one acres of land in Charleston Township, and became occupied in agricultural pursuits. He subsequently added twelve acres to his first purchase, and upon this homestead remained until his death.
Of the union of Mr. and Mrs. Allbaugh were born nine children, of whom five are deceased, viz., Nancy E., Stephen, William H., Mary F. and Edward. Those surviving are: Hubburt H., George M., Dona C. and Allery.
