OBITUARY
------------
          Allen Creed  was born in the state of Ohio on the 27th day of October 1827.
          When about 19 years of age, he enlisted as private in Company C. 2nd regiment of Ohio volunteers and served his country as a soldier during the Mexican war 1845 to 1848, and was at his death one of the very few survivors of that war.
          After his discharge from the army he came to Indiana, and about the year 1854 he was united in marriage to  Louisa Ballard  near Blue Ridge, Shelby county, Indiana.
          To them were born five children, four daughters and one son.  One of the daughters, Lulu, died in the year 1897, in the twenty-fourth year of her age.
          His wife, the partner of his joys and sorrows, preceded him to the spirit land; she departed this life on the 5th day of November, 1901.
          Since that time he has lived among his children, waiting patiently until the summon would come that would reunite them in a fairer world where parting is no more.
          He united with the Methodist Protestant church in 1901.  Since which time he has lived an honored, consistent member.
          He leaves behind to mourn his loss four children, twenty grandchildren and three great grandchildren; besides a host of acquaintances and friends, for to know him was to be his friend.
          He has had his share of troubles and sorrows of life, as well as its joys and pleasures, but this life is but the threshold of an endless state of being; we must encounter trouble and sorrow in performing our various duties in life.  "Good actions give strength to ourselves, and inspire good actions in others."  May we emulate and imitate all the good actions that were in the life of our departed friend.
          He died on the 27th day of April, 1906, having lived to the ripe old age of seventy-eight years and six months.  He was a plain and unassuming man, and one of nature's noblemen.
