Joseph B. Allen

Bennington Banner

Jan.31, 1907


Died After Short Illness Wednesday Night At The Home of His Son.

Joseph B. Allen, a well-known resident of the village and a veteran of the civil war, died at the residence of his son, Frederick, on Union street, Wednesday night from pneumonia that he contracted last Friday, and from which he never rallied.

Mr. Allen was born in North Bennington 62 years ago and the most of his life has been spent in this town. He served during the rebellion in the 17th Vermont volunteers, enlisting in Wilmington. At the end of this enlistment he entered the Second Vermont and served until the end of the war. He had an excellent record as a soldier and stood well in his command. For some time after his return from the war he was engaged in business in Wilmington but finally returned to his old home where he has since been located.

He was a comrade of the GAR post in Wilmington, and was always interested in the organization. He was a genial, kind hearted man and had many friends who will regret to hear of his death. He leaves two sons, one daughter, one brother and one sister.
