Allen A. Firestone, After Long Illness, is Called by Death
Allen A. Firestone died at his home 143 Haines Avenue Sunday afternoon January 30 at one o'clock after an illness covering the past two years rendering him bedfast the past two weeks. He is survived by his wife, one daughter Mrs. Oscar Mummert and three grandchildren, also by one brother William Firestone of Columbiana, and two sisters Mrs. A. P. Dickey of Bogulusa, La., and Mrs. David Walter of Columbiana.
Deceased was the son of David and Sarah Firestone and was born at Columbiana, July 22, 1862. On October 4, 1885, he was united in marriage with Miss Ella Seidner of Columbiana. In 1896 the Firestones came to Alliance and Mr. Firestone found employment as a machinist in the Morgan Engineering company where he was later promoted as an erector and traveled extensively for the M. E. company. On October 18, 1902, while erecting a crane at the navy yard at Washington, D. C., a fastening on a steel casting weighing 87 pounds fell, and struck Mr. Firestone on the head making a severe fracture of the skull which was at the time believe to be fatal. He was taken to a hospital in Washington and eminent surgeons secured. A portion of the skull about two inches in diamter on the top of the head was removed and nothing in the way of a plate was inserted in place. Mr. Firestone remained in the hospital for six weeks and was then brought to this home for slow recovery. That was eighteen years ago and the injury received then is believed to have been the primary cause of his death, as he never fully recovered. After the injury above noted Mr. Firestone continued to work for the Morgan Engineering company in cashing material on the railroads that it be dispatched quickly. For four years he filled the position of fire inspector for the city at which he proved a competent man. He was an angler and hunter and these sports were greatly enjoyed by him. He had a wide acquaintance and was always companionable and a favorite with all who knew him. He was a member of Alliance Lodge No. 266 I. O. O. F. He was distinctively a home man and enjoyed his home and the company of his family to an unusual degree.
The funeral services will be held from the home at two o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Ritualistic services for the I. O. O. F. will be held Tuesday evening at 7:30 o'clock Friends may view the remains from 6 to 9 o'clock p.m. Tuesday.
