Marble Carver–J. T. Allen

Josiah Tingley Allen (1814-1855) of Cahaba Marble Works was described in “Memories of Old Cahaba” as one of the finest stone-cutters in Alabama, “an artist in the art,” and was celebrated for his exquisite work. His marble yard was near his residence, across the road in front of his house. Son of Josiah Allen and Rowena Tingley, he was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts and died in Alabama.
