The death of Sam Allen.

Wilson Daily Times, 23 December 1930.

We read here of the terrible injury Samuel Allen suffered to his foot in 1894.

Allen was a child during the antebellum era, so it’s not entirely clear what McFarland’s “compliment” meant.

“The colored Methodist church” was likely Saint John A.M.E. Zion, and “the cemetery” was most likely either Vick or Rountree Cemetery.
