Allen, Lemuel Q
Allen, Lemuel Q.
a minister, in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was born in Habersham County, Ga., June 1, 1825. He experienced conversion in 1849; received license to preach in 1851, and in 1852 united with the North Georgia Conference. He was not equipped with any of the aids that early culture and mental discipline afford, but he consecrated a vigorous mind and an honest, noble heart, and soon became a powerful herald of the Cross. He died of cancer, Aug. 11, 1868. Mr. Allen's pulpit ministrations were characterized by simplicity of manner and solidity of matter. He was zealous and devoted; was endowed with high social qualities, and was peculiarly happy in his domestic relations. See Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M. E. Church, South, 1868, p. 220.
