Death of A. P. Allen.
Another of our old and esteemed citizens and friend, has passed to his final rest, Almerrin Park Allen having died at 12:30 o'clock on last Monday morning at his residence in this town....
Mr. Allen was born in New Hepburn, Washington County, New York, June 9, 1840, and had he lived until to-day would have been 60 years old. He moved to Iowa in 1857, where he engaged in farming and acquired a fine farm, making him a beautiful home, but in 1878 he came to California and located in Mono county, residing in Bodie in its boom days and then returned to his old home, which he sold and returned to Mono county, locating here in Bridgeport, his health and that of his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth H. Allen, whom he married in Iowa, being much better here and they have resided here now about twenty years, respected and greatly esteemed by all our people...
A long procession followed the hearse to the Cemetery, where the services were read... and our good friend was left to his peaceful rest, near the resting place of his old friends and neighbors, the late P. Parmeter and R. M. Folger, all of whom rest near together in the same plot.
