John ttdl Buys Allen Inizfence
Agency Here; Changes toe Of firm
By J. R. Grady
The M. F. Allen Insurance Agen
cy of Kenansville, established late
in 1941, was just anoiner new Dull
ness for Kenansville that opened
all prophesied odds that it 'couldn't
make the grade.' In those days this
seemed to he the bi-word for Ken
ansville when suggestion for an
other new business was made. But
the new Insurance agency, estab
lished by M. F. Allen, Jr., was
born with a determination and a be
lief in Kenansville and lust as ev
ery other new establishment here
durine the past fifteen years, born
with a faith and a belief, it has
grown ta almost unbelievable pro
positions. Today use m. r. Alien
Insurance Agency has grown to be
come one of the larger agencies in
the county doing a general insur
With announcement a few days
ago that Mr. Allen was leaving Ken
ansville and moving to Jacksonville,
where he will become executive
vice president of a new bank being
organized there, his insurance bus!
ness immediately became a luscious
plum that many wanted to bite. In
terviewing Mr. Allen this week the
Times learned that Just as he had
an abiding faith in. Kenansville in
1941 he has that same faith in John
B. Hall, a native son of Kenansville,
who went with his Insurance Agen
cy only last March. John is well
known here and liked by everyone
who knows him. Allen said he
hadn't been associated with him
but a very short time when he dis
covered that John was a person one
could depend on, one who was deep
ly interested In the business and
one who is interested in the growth
and development of Kenansville
and Duplin County. With this faith
in Hall, Mr. Allen ignored all other
offers or portended offers and sold
his business to Hall, lock stock and
barrell, including the office fix
tures. He ' feels, and the Times
agrees, that this act has brought
back to Kenansville -as a perman
ent citizen one who is destined to
go far in the business world of
Kenansville and Duplin County.

Ralph Miller, new High Sheriff

JOHN B. HALL
Mr. Hall has decided to change
the name -of the business to the
John Hall Insurance Agency and
his office will continue to be locat
ed in the same office occupied by
Mr. Allen. John is the son of Mrs.
Delia Whaley and was born and
reared here. In 1942 he graduated
from Kenansville High, following
which he served 4 years in the
Navy. Leaving Uncle Sam he at
tended college at Mercer College
in Georgia and E.C.C. in Greenville.
Since that time he has worked with
Leo Jackson's! Store here and for
several months prior to going with
the Allen Insurance firm he sold
vacuum cleaners throughout this
area. He is married to the former
Carolyn McRanie of Georgia. They
have three .small children, Carol,

are living in Warsaw out of neces
