James Byron Allison

James Byron Allison was born Dec. 16, 1872 and died Dec. 16, 1905, aged 33 years and being the anniversary of his birth. He was the son of James and Ann Allison of Monroe township. He was a pharmacist, having been educated at Angola, Indiana. After serving some time in his chosen occupation his health failed and with his wife he went to Texas and afterwards to Mexico, in the hope that the change would be beneficial. For the greater part of the three years he was located at Albuquerque. For a time the climate seemed to inspire hope of recovery, but the time came when he choose home and loved ones to all else. He started for home on the 16th of Dec. and passed away on the train at Raton, not yet at the danger point, which is Lynn - the summit called the dead line. He was cared for by railroad officials, and their kindness to Mrs. Allison could not have been excelled. On the following day she left with the body for Millersburg, and at Topeka, Kansas was joined by his brother Ellsworth and wife who accompanied her. We feel deeply the loss of such energetic and well qualified young men when they are just in the prime of manhood. There was three brothers, Herbert, Ellsworth and William, the latter dying in the south while engaged in work at the Southern Christian Institute. There were five sisters, Laura, Lula, Zorelda, May and Estella, the latter having passed away some years ago. There remains to mourn his departure his wife, mother, two brothers and four sisters. On June 25, 1902, he was united in marriage to Mame M. Goodale of Angola, Indiana. An infant daughter is the result of this union. Deceased united with the Christian church at Welcome when about eleven years old, under the pastorate of Rev. James Snyder. He was an active and efficient worker in all departs of the church and leaves the example of a Godly life to comfort those whom he dearly loved. The funeral services were held at the Welcome church on Wednesday, Dec. 20, services being conducted by Rev. A. M. Bird of Fredericksburg.

We sincerely thank our friends, neighbors and all those who so kindly rendered assistance at our recent sad bereavement, the loss of a beloved husband, son and brother. - Mrs. James Allison and Family, Mrs. Byron Allison.
