(The following emailed to EA Dec. 1999)

Last Friday afternnon at 4:40 o'clock, Grandpa Allen died at the home ofhis son, M W Allen, in South Meridian. He had suffered with a bad attackof the grippe, for several days past, and hsi death was hastened by afall which he sustained the early part of the week. While his demise wasnot unexpected,
it comes as a sad shock to the community in which he had made his homefor the past nine years.

William Allen was born in Knox County, Ohio on January 6, 1828, and wasmarried to Charlotte Sams of Perry County, Ohio in 1850. The next yearthey removed to Clinton Co., Iowa and in 1872 moved again, settling inNorth Central Kansas. Some few years afterwards, he went still furtherWest, living for a time in Wyoming, later purchasing a fruit farm nearMontrose, Colorado, where they remained until 1908, when they came toMeridian to spend the last years of their lives near their son, Miles W.Allen.
William and Charlotte Allen were the parents of seven children, six ofwhom are still living. Mrs. Allen died on the 7th day of February, 1908,four years and two days prior to the death of her husband,and was buriedin the cemetery on the Allen farm south of town.

Mr. Allen was a member of Co. A, 16th Iowa Infantry, and served throughthe war. He was a member of the Congregational Church, and was a devoutChristian.

Funeral Services were conducted by Rev. Parker of Guthrie, Saturdayafternoon at the residence, and he was laid to rest by the side of hiswife. F M Allen, his youngest brother who lives near Sumner in NobleCounty, Oklahoma, was the only out-of-town relative in attendance.

We wish to extend our sympathy to the bereaved ones in this their greathour of sorrow, and can truthfully say that everyone who knew Grandpa wasa firend to him, looked up to him, and respected him.
