His parents came to this country in 1832, when he was only ten years of age, an settled on Swan Creek - in a wilderness; there were no roads, and they had to carry their wheat and supplies in their backs. Mr. ALLEN worked for $10 a month, and paid $14 a barrel for flour; then divided it in three parts, put in bags and carried home, ten miles, on their backs. He worked six years for old Capt. CLARKE; afterward bought it and cleared it of timber, cut 600 cords of wood to pay for his land - used to cut five cords of wood a day, and get 25 cents a cord for cutting it; owns a good farm; has been engaged in farming thirty-five years. In 1864, he enlisted in Company I, Fourth Michigan Infantry, and served until a few months before the close of the war; was discharged at San Antonio, Texas, on account of sickness. Mr. ALLEN's first wife was Miss 'Rebecca M. RANKIN,' a native of the Island of Jamaica; she died 1880. He was married September 8, 1880, to Mary Jane CLARK, a native of Vermont; her parents came to this country in 1832 , and settled in the town of St. Clair. She has four sons - John, Frederick W., S.

In 1837, Abzina, her second daughter, married Sidney Kinyon; he was a native of New York State, and came to this county with his father's family in 1832, and was a brother of, Capt. Kinyon [Phineas II or Martin], and Miron Kinyon of this town. He died July 16, 1876 (1879), leaving two daughters - Mary E., now Mrs. Maj. Baker, and Emma, at home with her mother.

=========
Mathais G. Ullenbruch founder of 'Ullenbruch Flower Shop,' Port Huron, St. Clair Co., Michigan was born in Germany [Hannebach, Rheinland-Pfalz [Westphalia], Germany] on May 13, 1854. His family immigrated to America in the late 1860's [1871] and moved directly to Detroit. He found work as a gardener at the House of Corrections. He married Gertrude Marie Petri of Detroit, a native of Westphalia, Germany, in 1880. The couple lived in Detroit for two years then moved to Port Huron in 1882. Upon their arrival, he started the Port Huron Nursery located in the 1800 block of Lapeer on land owned by Benjamin Karrer Sr and known as the Park House-Karrer racetrack property. In 1884, when the purchase of the property was completed, the business name was changed to 'Math. Ullenbruch-Florist.' He advertised a wide variety of plants and flowers with roses as a specialty. He also had telephone and telegraph connections in the greenhouse, advertising prompt attention to all orders. In the 1890's due to expansion of the business, he moved the store to a location on Water Street. A few years later it was moved to 1029 Military across from the Hotel Harrington. After approximately sixty years in town, the store was moved back to 1839 Lapeer when the new store was built in 1959. Upon Math's death August 3, 1926, the business was divided into two parts. The Math Ullenbruch Estate, which was the property and greenhouses on Lapeer Ave., went to his eldest son Norbert J. and the downtown store to his eldest daughter Viola M.. Walter took over the business on his sister's death in 1948 and was again owned by one person. The business has been sold since Walter's death in 1990 but is still located on Lapeer Rd.
