REV. DAVID ALLEE David Allee, of French and English descent, was born on April 25, 1762, in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. His parents were Nicholas and Ann Allee. David was only 13 years old when he entered the Revolutionary War, volunteering for six months service. He signed up three more times, making his service on the Virginia frontier more than two years. David married Charity Bybee (of Welsh descent) December 4, 1784 and lived on land given him by his father, Nicholas. In 1795, David moved his growing family to Barren County, Kentucky. The year 1806 was a significant one as he was ordained a minister at the Glover's Creek Baptist Church and he started a new profession at the age of 44. In 1820 David Allee settled in Moniteau County northeast of Clarksburg, then densely covered with young pin oak timber. He brought ten of his eleven children, all married but one. They were Nicholas married to Tempey Hill; Betsey married to Thomas Scott; Buford married to Suzanna Evans; Anne married to Kemp Scott; Winifred married to William Birdsong; Polly married to Captain Stephen Cole; Jerusa married to James Hill; William married to Anna Hill ; Charity married to Carrick Howard ; and David who never married. John remained in Kentucky. All built houses of identically the same size and type. The nearest settlement to the Allee's was that of the Martins about 5 miles to the west. There were no settlements to the north, east, or south for many miles. The nearest trading places were Seeley's Store near Tipton, Franklin, Sandy Hook and Marion on the river. After the Allee families got settled, William and Nicholas, both of whom had married daughters of Mildred Hines "Granny" Hill, returned to Kentucky and brought their mother-in-law and the remainder of her family, including six sons to this county. They settled on land next to that of the Allee's. "Granny" Hill, whose husband died in Kentucky, became the origin of most of the Hill families in this vicinity. She lived to be 105 years old. Rev. Allee rode throughout the surrounding counties of Saline, Morgan, Moniteau, Cooper, Cole, Callaway, Boone and Howard, preaching his Baptist gospel. While he helped start many Churches, his first one was most often chosen by his family for membership. Named Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, it was formed in 1823. In the summer of 1825 he built a rude cabin and taught the first school in the neighborhood, almost at his own expense. Rev. Allee's manner of preaching was plain and forcible. He was not what would be called now a systematic preacher, but his sermons were made rich with scripture quotations well adapted and fittingly chosen. He was a man of prayer and deeply pious and these gave him power as a gospel minister. He spent the summer of 1834 in Kentucky, returning to Missouri in the fall and after a long and painful affliction died in January 1835. The Allee Cemetery, northwest of California was located on William Allee's farm, a son of Rev. David Allee.
