Samuel was the fourth child of Mary Jane Plummer and Hiram Lewis Allen and was born on April 10, 1860, in Sutter's Creek, Amador County, California. Samuel relocated to Kern County in 1866 and died in Bakersfield on July 19, 1936. According to The Californian's Old Timer Series Samuel accompanied the first women to climb Mt. Whitney in 1883. The group consisted of Jack Jameson, Ella Jameson, Samuel Plummer Allen, Ella  Rener (spelling questionable) and Jeff Carver. The group left a record of the ascent in a baking powder can.
