Cav., serving until the close of the war. Beside his wife, he is survived by two sons, Leo B. Allen and Reid W. Allen, both of this city., by one sister, of De Lamson, N.Y., and by one brother, F. Z. Allen, who resides on Messenger st. Mr. Allen was a member of Franklin lodge, No. 4, F & A.M., and also of A.R.
