ALLYN, Eunice E. Gibbs
Besides composing poems for recitation in school, she often wrote songs, both words and music, when she could not find songs suited to various occasions.
In 1873 she was married to Clarence G. Allyn, of Nyack, N.Y. After spending several years at Nyack, New London, Conn., and Auburn, N.Y., they moved to Dubuque.
Before her marriage, she gained valuable experience as Washington correspondent of the Chicago "Inter-Ocean," a position which she filled for a year. She also wrote numerous articles for the St. Louis "Globe," the New York "World" and various New York, Boston, Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Chicago journals.
