Marshfield News 24 February 1898
Information has been received here of the death of Mr. T. Allain, who until last fall owned 80 acres of land just north of our village. Mr. Allain left here about three months ago and when again heard from he had settled down in some town in the state of Washington. As near as we are able to learn he had rented rooms and depended upon small jobs of work at his trade for a living. The owner called several times to collect the rent due but always found the doors locked. Finally entrance was gained by breaking in the doors and Mr. Allain was found lifeless. Upon his person was found an old letter bearing the Fond du Lac, Wis. postmark and also proved to have been written in Fond du Lac. Information was sent to Fond du Lac and from there to Unity. Mr. Allain has relatives at both places. Twenty dollars in money was also found upon his person which we learn was used for burial expenses. The belief is that suicide was committed for poison was found in the room where his remains were found. Mr. Allain at one time owned a good farm in Fond du Lac county but disposed of it and came to Unity a few years ago and purchased a large tract of land from the J. Week Lumber Co. On account of being unable to meet payments he lost a good share of it and finally succeeded in selling the balance to O.C. Haman, of this village. Before leaving he visited Colby and purchased a suit of clothes, gun and other articles. He probably had in the neighborhood of $200 when he departed.
