John Lewis Allen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 11, 1892
Death: Apr. 1, 1928

Mr. John L. Allen. former citizen of this community, died at Eagle Lake last Sunday, and the remains were brought to this city for interment, the funeral taking place Monday afternoon from the residence of his father-in-law, Chas. Gerstenberg, a short distance southeast of Weimar, interment being in the Odd Fellows" Cemetery, with Rev. C. E. Bludworth, local Methodist pastor, officiating at the grave.

Mr. Allen was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Will Allen, former respected residents of the County Line community, and most of his boyhood days was spent in that section. As he grew to young manhood he was united in marriage to Miss Gerstenberg, and for a number of years the happy couple made their home near this city. In 1925 he moved to Bay City, and for a time the couple made their home there, afterward moving to Eagle Lake, where Mr. Allen secured employment as superintendent of a gravel pit, in which capacity he labored until stricken with flu several weeks since, which disease developed into pneumonia, and later caused his death. He is survived by his widow and two children.

Mr. Allen was a comparatively young man at the time of his death, being about 35 years of age. He was a man of friendly disposition, a hard worker, a devoted husband and father, and highly regarded by all who knew him. His death is deeply and sincerely regretted by all.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his bereaved ones.
