Allan, Fred (20 MAR 1871 - 22 JUL 1907)

Died, at his home in Milladore, Monday morning, July 22nd, 1907, of typhoid fever, Mr. Fred Allan, aged 36 years, 4 months and 2 days.

Deceased was born at Adell, Sheboygan Co., Wis., March 20th, 1871, and came to Marathon Co. with his parents, Mrs. and Mrs. James A. Allan, in March 1879, and resided in the town of Hull until about two years ago when he removed to Milladore, where he was carrier on the rural mail route running out from that place. He was taken with typhoid fever five weeks ago and was a very sick man, but during the last week of his sickness he was reported to be on the gain and the announcement of his death was a shock and surprise to his friends here.

Fred was an honest, hardworking young man, highly respected by all who knew him. He was united in marriage on July 4th, 1898, to Miss Lulu Lafee of the town of Hull, who with four young children survive him, and have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.

The remains were brought to Colby, Wedensday afternoon, and the funeral held from the M.E. Church under the auspices of the Colby Lodge, No. 204, F.& A.M., of which order Fred was a member. The beautiful burial service at the grave was conducted by W.C. Pradt.

His relatives abroad who were in attendance at the funeral were his sisters, Mrs. Albert Greenwood of Fairfax, Va., and Mrs. Frank Wilcox of Knowlton, who were with him previous to his death, and his aunt, Mrs. Lizzie Robinson of Waldo. Mr. and Mrs. James Allan and Daisy of Washington, D.C., were unable to be present owing to the serious illness of Mrs. Allan.
