  • Notes 

    • ANNA MARY (McCANN) ALLEN , was born June 13, 1851 in Conersville, Ind. When but 4 years of age she came with her mother to Ill.

      She was united in marriage to Walter W. Allen Sept. 1, 1869 in Morrison, Ill. There came into this home nine children, Della I. Spang of Hartely, Iowa., Rollo D. of Millidgeville, Clara M. Hahn of Sterling, Ill., Louis J. of Milledgeville, Gertie, deceased; Edith Imel of Fair Haven, Eva Todd of Milldegeville, Orville and Laura of Millidgeville.

      The deceased leaves to mourn over her departure beside her husband and father, two sisters Mrs. Ed. Duffy of Eagle Point and Mrs. June Barnhart of Chadwick, also the following half brothers and half sisters; Samuel Murray of Milledgeville, Mrs. Amos Schryver of Milledgeville, Mrs. Wm, Dieterle of Sterling, John Bracken of Milledgeville and Thomas Bracken of Sterling. Mrs. Allen resided in this town for 16 years and died Friday evening, Oct 18 (1912) at the age of 61 years, 4 months and 5 days. She was a member of the Baptist church here in Milledgeville, having united with that body March 17, 1895. For several years she has been attending the Brethren church when she could. Sometimes she would venture out when her physical condition was in a weakened state. On the Sunday evening of Oct. 8. She was present at the services on last Tuesday evening. Her interest in the service of the master was of comfort to her. The predominating element in the departed was her service for others and for her family. She virtually poured out her life for those about her, and it seems that she poured it out rapidly. She was kind and affectionate to her husband and family.

      Her work on earth is done, so far as we can see, yet the good deeds that she did ought to be a lasting lesson to all her children and many friends. Funeral at the Brethren church at 10:30 Monday morning, conducted by Z. T. Livengood assisted by Rev. W. A. Garber. Interment in South Elkhorn cemetery.
