Hiram H. Allen

Well Known Business Man Dies Wednesday Evening.

The death of Hiram H. Allen, for over twenty years a successful and popular business occurred at his home, West Main street last night after having been ill for about two years. He had never fully recovered from an operation which was performed at the Pittsfield hospital over two years ago, although he was well enough last summer to drive his car about the village. He has been confined to the house all this year, with a development of paralysis of the throat.

Mr. Allen was born in North Bennington 68 years ago. He enlisted in Company I, 2nd Vermont and served a term of three years during the civil war, being among the Union troops who marched into Richmond. On May 29, 1880, he married Estella J. Rising of Hoosick Falls, after which he moved to Bennington and has lived here since. He has been engaged in the fish and vegetable business on Main street for a long time and had made a large number of friends who will regret to learn of his death.

Besides the widow, he leaves a sister, Mrs. Isabel Rising of Westfield, Mass., and a number of nieces and nephews, including Mrs. Theodore Brien, Mrs. John Carl, and Mrs. Geo. Pitney, all of Westfield, Mass., Miss Lulu Rising of Boston, Mass., Harry Rising of Beverly, Mass., and Frederick Allen of this town.

Mr. Allen was a faithful member of the Brotherhood of the Methodist church and a member of the G.A.R. The funeral which will be private will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon from the house. Rev. P.L. Dow will officiate. Burial will be in the Hinsdillville cemetery. Friends may call at the house between 1 and 2 Friday afternoon.
