Louth (1835)

Kirk Oswald gave Elizabeth Allen (who became Mrs Vernon) to the work of the ministry, and she laboured with marked success in various counties in the United Kingdom. In Scotland she was obliged always to preach in the open-air, there being no place available sufficiently large to hold the people who flocked to hear her. So great was the revival at Louth that for six months she scarcely ever retired to rest until after midnight. Thomas Batty recorded that her name was embalmed in the memory of many who sat under her ministry at Macclesfield. She died in the Ramsor Circuit, on January 8th, 1850, in her forty-seventh year.
