Frank O. Allen died at his home in Post Mills, Friday, January 6. Just four weeks ago he fell in his home, and fractured his hip, from which he never recovered. Although able to be around, he had been failing for some time, and had bad spells during one of these he fell. Mr. Allen was born in East Roxbury, May 7, 1845. He married Ella M. Steele sixty years ago, next Thanksgiving. For about thirty years they lived on the home farm, after which they came to Northfield, and Mr. Allen built the house formerly owned by his son, Dr. B. F. Allen, and now owned by Douglas Howes. Nineteen years ago, he moved to Post Mills, and since that time, Mr. And Mrs. Allen made their home there, where they have a large circle of friends and acquaintances. Aside from his wife, Mr. Allen is survived by three sons, Charles J. Allen of Shelburne; Dr. B. F Allen of Northfield, Six grandchildren, also one sister, Mrs. Leroy A. Eastman, of Jacksonville, Fla.

Brownlee, pastor of the local Methodist church offered prayer at the grave. The bearers were the three sons, and R. H. Hatch, a neighbor and close friend of Mr. Allen.
