Death of Newfane Veteran

Henry Jonas Allen, 86, a veteran of the Civil war, a former resident of Brattleboro over 25 years, and humane agent there many years, died Friday afternoon in Newfane, where he had been living the past few months in one of the cottages belonging to his son, Dorr W. Allen.

Mr. Allen was born in Windham, March 27, 1841, son of Jonas W. and Hannah (Smith) Allen. He lived in that town until 12 years old when he moved with his parents to Jamaica, where he grew to manhood. He worked as a farmer and at carpentry until his enlistment in the Civil war, Aug. 11, 1862, in Jamaica.
