Allen, Amos

a Baptist minister, was born in Maine about 1775. In 1807 he was licensed to preach by the First Church in Bluehill, Me. Three years afterwards he received ordination; and for eight years he devoted himself to evangelical labors among the destitute churches of his native State. In 1818 he was chosen pastor of the Church in Brooksville, where he remained till 1833. For the next four years he supplied destitute churches. In 1837 he was called to the pastorate of the Second Church in Bluehill. Here he remained till 1842, when he resigned and returned to his work as an evangelist. The exact date of his death we have not been able to ascertain. See Millett, Hist. of the Baptists of Maine, p. 433. (J. C. S.)
