The following is from: "THE COMPANY ROLL, With a Brief Comment Upon Each Member of COMPANY I, 7th Cavalry Missouri Volunteers" by Sergeant John Shaver, Kirksville, Missouri - 1898, page 3.
Lieutenant John Allen comes next to my mind,
A brave, dauntless fellow though gentle and kind,
His bravery and prowess he oft demonstrated,
But he early resigned with a leg amputated.
