Jane Frances Blood Allen
Many hearts were saddened to learn that at 8:30 o’clock Saturday night occurred the death of Jane Frances Blood, beloved wife of Samuel G. Allen, at the home, 2 Kingsboro avenue. It was known that Mrs. Allen’s life had hung as if by a thread for the preceding forty-eight hours and scores of friends were hopeful that her youth and vitality would carry her safely over the crisis. Pneumonia was the cause of death.
Mrs. Allen was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John R. Blood of Amsterdam, and in the city of her birth she was especially well-known and greatly admired and beloved. Her marriage to Mr. Allen, about five years ago, made Mrs. Allen a permanent resident of Gloversville, where, for a number of years she had often been prominent and popular in social circles. Since she came here to live she had by her charming personality attracted many new friends, and the sorrow that is felt because of her passing is heartfelt and sincere.
Besides her husband and one daughter, Margaret Van Wie Allen, Mrs. Allen is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John R. Blood; one brother, Lieutenant F. Van Wie Blood; and one sister, Margaret Elanore [sic.] Blood, of Amsterdam.
The funeral service will be held at the home, 2 Kingsboro avenue, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock.
Note: Jane Frances Blood Allen was 16 May 1892 in Amsterdam, Montgomery County, New York to John R. Blood and Margaret Van Wie. She married Samuel Gardner Allen in 22 October 1913. They had one child, Margaret Van Wie Allen. Samuel Gardner Allen never remarried.
