Obit: 14 Sep 1904, Elk City Record, Elk City, Beckham Co, OK

Last Wednesday A. A. Allen was in Elk City when he loaded his wagon with lumber and started out on return to his home about six miles southeast of town. It was noticed that he was pretty full of Intoxicants and could hardly keep his seat on the wagon. Frank Jackson, a near neighbor of
Allen, drove another team, they leaving town together. Mr. Jackson says that when they got about four miles from town, Allen stopped his team and laid down on the ground. He, Jackson, loosened the traces on Allen's horses and tied the lines to the wagon. He then drove off home expecting
Allen to go on after he had slept off the whiskey. The next day, he came back, looking for Allen, when he found him he was dead, one of his wagon wheels resting on his neck. He had hitched the team up and made another start for home but had driven off the road down into a rough canon (sic)
where the wagon was partly overturned, throwing Allen out to his death. Mr. Jackson notified Esquire Peace who summoned a jury and held an inquest. In addition to statements made by Jackson, Dr. Standifer testified that he was driving out to attend a patient and saw the deceased, Allen, lying on the ground near his wagon. He asked him whether he was sick or hurt. The Doctor told him to take the laprobe out of his
buggy and lie down till daylight. But he declined to do this, and lay down again near the wagon. This was about 10:30 p.m. The Doctor says that when he came back along the road Allen and the team had disappeared. The jury's verdict was accidental death caused by falling out of the wagon
and crushed by a wheel. There was a fracture on the side of his skull and his neck was crushed. On searching him $44.80 was found in his pockets.

The body was taken to Ural for burial.

Deceased was a bachelor about thirty-five years of age with no relatives in the country as far as his neighbors know. His farm with improvements is supposed to be worth near
$20,000.
