['Automobile kills Major John R. Allen', Philadelphia Inquirer 9 September 1921 page 10; transcribed 26 March 2011, from GenealogyBank]
AUTOMOBILE KILLS MAJOR JOHN R. ALLEN
Civil War Veteran Struck by Neighbor's Car at His Own Gate

A fracture of the skull, received when he was struck by a friend's automobile at the gate of his home in Thornton, Delaware county, proved fatal to Major John R. Allen, a Civil War veteran employed as a bookkeeper for Horst Brothers, 139 North Sixth street, this city, who died on Wednesday in the West Chester Hospital. He was seventy-eight years old.

The accident occurred on Tuesday when the major, returning home at dusk, turned into his gate just as two motor cars, going in opposite directions, passed by the front of his house. Laurence Beebe, a neighbor, was driving one of the machines, and it was when he became blinded by the lights of the other auto that he struck Major Allen.

MOTOR ACCIDENT FATAL TO MAJOR JOHN R. ALLEN
Civil War Veteran Succumbs in Chester County Hospital

West Chester, Pa., Sept. 8.--Major John R. Allen, seventy-eight, prominent resident near Thornton, Delaware County, and for ten years an employe of Horst Brothers, Philadelphia, died in the Chester County Hospital last night while undergoing an operation following injuries Tuesday evening when struck by an automobile.

Allen was a major in the Ninety-first Infantry, Pennsylvania Volunteers, during the Civil War, and afterward a farmer for several years in Maryland. He was a member of Darby Meeting of Friends, Garfield Post, G.A.R., Chester Lodge of Masons and the Knights Templar.

Major Allen came of old Quaker stock. His father, Thomas C. Allen, came from Delaware in 1822 to Upper Darby. He was descended on the maternal side from the Paschalls, who settled Paschallville.

He is survived by two sons and two daughters, and one sister, Mrs. Mary A. Dougherty, of Aldan, Pa.
