* "I first thought this was my great grandfather, Dr. John M. Allen, of Chester, but realized that it couldn't be because he died 20 Apr 1903. He was a member of Wilde Post No. 25 G. A. R. He did have a son, John B. Allen, who was also a G. A. R. member there in Chester. He was also a member of the Franklin Fire Company and was known as "Doc." Is it possible that # 31 is John B. Allen or is it some other person who happens to have the same name as my great grandfather.

According to the newspaper article on the death of John B. Allen he was an adjutant of the G. A. R., the oldest member of the Franklin Fire Company and a member of the Larkin Lodge, Knights of Pythias"
