Sumter, South Carolina
15 May 1901 pg. 3
Upon arrival at Mr. Elias Allen's home, they discovered that he had passed away in his barn. The coroner report stated that it was due to natural causes due to heart problems that had been treated in the past by his Doctor.
Elias was buried in Hephzibah Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Manville, Lee, South Carolina. The same cemetery where friend Alpheus J. Baker was buried after his death in 1917.
They set out that day to visit a friend. Unusual and sad circumstances met them instead.
