ALLEN, Moses, clergyman, born in Northampton, Massachusetts, 14 September 1748: died February 8, 1779. He was graduated at Princeton in 1772, was licensed to preach in 1774, and was ordained at Christ's Church parish, south of Charleston, South Carolina, in 1775. In 1777 he took charge of the Church at Midway, Georgia The British force under General Prevost burned his Church and devastated the district in 1778. He officiated as chaplain to the Georgia brigade, and was captured when Savannah was reduced by the British in December. His eloquent patriotic appeals and energetic exertions in the feld had rendered him obnoxious to the British, and they refused to release him on parole with the officers. He was confined in a loathsome prisonship, and was drowned in attempting to escape.
