Excerpt from the Elk Point Leader, July 9, 1896, page 5, column 3:

"Our community was startled Sunday afternoon by the announcement that Mrs. Solomon Allen, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Union County, was dead. The news of Mrs. Allen's death was entirely unexpected as she had been in the city to witness the Fourth of July celebration on Saturday and was apparently in the best of health. But shortly after returning to her home two miles east of Elk Point, she was stricken with apoplexy and died at 11:45 Sunday forenoon.

Mrs. Allen came to this county with her husband on October 6, 1867, and settled on the homestead where she lived at the time of her death, She was born in Orr, Orleans County, New York, on June 22, 1822, and at the time of her death was 74 years old. As a result of the union seven children were born, four of whom are still living - Ethan, in Oklahoma; Willard, Solomon and Amanda in this county. Deceased's husband died on February 2, 1888, at the age of 72 years.

The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. Allen were held Monday from the M.E. Church, being largely attended by sympathizing friends.

THE LEADER extends the sympathy of the community to the bereaved family."
