Charles Montague Allen Dies in Arizona

He Was the Son of Charles T. Allen of Oceanic and Went West in Search of Health - He Was Married About a Week Before He Died

Charles Montague Allen, son of Capt. Charles T. Allen of Oceanic, died on Monday at Walnut Grove, Arizona, where he had gone for the benefit of his health. He was 24 years old. He was married on December 28th, 1900, to Miss Ellen Stone of San Francisco, California, whom he had met since going West. His body will be buried at that place.

Mr. Allen was born at Oceanic. He became a clerk in James Enright's store at an early age and was employed there about four years. He left there to accept a position as purser on the Lincoln Park boats and he afterward became steward of a big restaurant at Philadelphia. Three years ago, while working in Philadelphia, his health began to fail and he went to southern California in the hope that a change of climate might stay the progress of the disease that threatened his life.

Soon after going to California he secured a position at San Francisco in one of the largest wholesale grocery houses on the Pacific coast. He gave up this position to accept a better paying one with the California powder company. Last November a sudden change for the worse in his condition caused him to go to Arizona. His father was sent for at that time and he made a visit to Arizona. When he returned home a few weeks ago his son seemed to be much improved in health. The improvement in his condition proved to be only temporary, however, and he lived but little over a week after his marriage to Miss Stone.

Mr. Allen was a young man of steady habits and of a genial disposition that made him very popular with all who knew him. His prospects in life were very bright and the sudden ending of his ambitions by death is a heavy blow to his family and to a large circle of friends. Mr. Allen's mother has been dead a good many years and his father has married again. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Edward Fenton of Lincroft and Mrs. John Yeomans of Oceanic; and two half sisters and a half brother, who live at home.

Per Death Notices Mr. Allen was aged 25 years , 7 months and 4 days.
