Allen, Ethan (2)

Allen, Ethan (2), an Episcopal minister, was born at Londonderry, Vt., Nov. 25, 1794, and was a graduate of Brown University in the class of 1823. For some years after his graduation he was engaged in teaching in Millwood, Va. In 1828 he became principal of the academy in Hanover, Mass., where he remained five years, and then removed to Rochester, N. Y. Here he had charge for some time of St. John's Parish School. While engaged in teaching, he had directed his attention to the study of theology, and, having been ordained, his first settlement was in Otis, Mass., where he remained ten years (1836- 46), and then removed to Nantucket, Mass., and was rector of Trinity Church in that place for nine years (1846-55). His next parish was in Guilford, Vt., for twelve years, and he died there May 19, 1867. (J. C. S.)
