Van Leet, Margaret (Marriage - Apr 1909)

A dispatch from La Crosse states that Dan Allen was married there last week to a Margaret Van Leet. He is aged 71 and she is 67. This is the Dan Allen who had a sensational career in this county years ago. He was charged with poisoning a neighbor named Wright and pending trial escaped from jail, and after several years was captured by Sheriff Page in Washington. He was brought back, tried and acquitted by the jury. The past winter Judge O’Neill met Allen in La Crosse and had a long interview with him. He has been living in La Crosse for the past seven years. Mrs. Wright’s name was Margaret and it is quite possible she is the same woman who is now married to Dan Allen. Romantic!
