He was usually known as Allen Henry Flood. 26 In 1888 he went West from Maine to look for opportunity. He was a cable car conductor in San Francisco and then worked as a surveyor, laying out the city of Spokane, WA. A promoter named George Davis convinced him of the future of the Marshall area south of Spokane. He and his brother-in-law, Ed Hopkinson, organized a party of twenty-eight friends and relatives from Buxton to settle in Marshall in 1890 and they traveled across the country in a chartered rail car. Some in the party eventually returned to Maine, but Allen started a dairy herd with his sons. This grew into the Broadview Dairy and he prospered for many years. He retired to Pasadena, CA and then returned to Spokane. 27
He founded the Broadview Dairy, Spokane, WA, 1893. The dairy grew to a large business and by the 1930's had modern panel trucks delivering milk to homes in Spokane. The dairy was purchased by the Carnation Co. in the 1920's. 28 Just under six feet in height, Allen was an avid fisherman and he was known for a gruff demeanor. 29
