Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 26 Apr 1918
"April 24 – Jesse Fitch Allen, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of this community, died Sunday morning of pleuro-pneumonia. Deceased was a son of Martin and Lucy Fitch Allen, pioneers of Ellsworth township, and was born August 14, 1841, in the house where he died and in which he resided all his life with the exception of four years while serving in the civil war. He was a member of the 105th OVI and no better or braver soldier ever wore a uniform. In early life he united with the Presbyterian church and in all the activities was a leading worker. He will be greatly missed in the community. He is survived by his wife, two brothers and two sisters, William H. of Ellsworth, Henry B., of Jamestown, N. D., Mrs. Mary Kirk of St. Paul and Lucy Hanson of Corvallis, Oregon. Funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church Wednesday, Rev. C. Case his pastor, and Rev. W. P. Hollister of Canfield being in charge. It was fitting that he should be honored with a military burial. Soldier boys, soon to see service in France in charge of army trucks halted in Ellsworth, acted as escort as the remains were borne to the Ellsworth cemetery and laid to rest."
"Friends here were sorry to hear of the sudden death of Jesse Allen of Ellsworth Saturday night. He had been having grippe for a week but was not considered serious until Saturday morning when plural pneumonia developed and he lived but a few hours."

Note: Civil War – Co. H 105th OVI
