|Death: ||Dec. 11, 1896|
When the Mercury last week congratulated Mr. J. T. Allen on the arrival of a little girl baby at his home, the writer little realized that he would so soon be called upon to sympathize with him in the loss by death of his beloved wife. But such is the case. Mrs. Allen never recovered consciousness after the birth of the little baby, and steadily grew worse, despite the efforts of the physicians and loving ministrations of husband and many friends, and on Friday night, Dec. 11, at 10 o'clock, the spirit of Mrs. Cora Allen was waifed heavenward to Him who gave it life. Her remains were committed to earth in the Odd Fellows' cemetery Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock, a large crowd of sympathizing friends witnessing the last sad rites. Mrs. Allen was a lady of many excellent traits, having a cheerful disposition, a kind and loving heart, and possessed a large circle of friends. She leaves a heartbroken husband and two little children, one of them--the baby--only twelve days old. In the loss of his beloved wife and companion, the grief-stricken husband has the sympathy of every citizen of Weimar. God pity and comfort him in his loss, is the sincere wish of the MERCURY!
