      Allen Thompson

      This memorable brother was born in Pendlington district, S.C., December 11, 1796. His parents moved from South Carolina to Kentucky when he was a very small boy, and finally settled in Warren county in that state. He was raised by religious parents belonging to the Dunker's, or as it sometimes called Dunkard's church.

      He was married to Sarah Barnett, January 25, 1826, with whom he lived fifty-seven years and five months. He professed religion on Monday, October 1819, and was baptized by John Dick, a Dunker minister, on Saturday after, into the fellowship of the Dunker church. He remained in Kentucky until the year 1824, in which time he was licensed to to preach, but did not exercise much until he moved to West Tennessee, October, 1824. After to moving to west Tennessee he united with a small Dunkard church, under the care of John Dick, who moving away left the church without a shepard.

      Elder Thompson was ordained while living with the Dunkards, by Elder Eison Gibson who then lived in Middle Tennessee.

      In 1829 by noticing the effects of preaching "the restitution of all things" upon the people, caused him to investigate the Scriptures; upon doing this he gave up the doctrine, and yet it was two or three years before he publicly renounced it. He was baptized into the fellowship of the Clover Creek Baptist Church on the second Saturday in May, 1840 by Elder Obadiah Dobson, and was licensed to preach in 1841; was ordained by Clover Creek Baptist Church-Elders G.W. Day and Jesse J. Smith constituting the Presbytery, the 28th of February,1842. He was afterwards chosen the pastor of Clover Creek church, which he served some four years. He has also served the Cane Creek church as their pastor for two years.
