Mr. Allgeyer had arisen early and had apparently taken the poison, soon afterwards, Mrs. Allgeyer and their children were awakened by his groans, while in a convulsion. Doctors were summoned, and they tried to relieve him, but he died within a short time.

Mr. Allgeyer, who was 53 years of age, was a son of the late Mr. And Mrs. Charles Francis Allgeyer. He was raised on the family farm, a short distance west of Winterset, and has always been engaged in farming, and the raising of livestock. His marriage to Miss Henrietta Newerf of Winterset took place twenty-three years ago, and they have since then made their home in Winterset, Mr. Allgeyer driving back and forth to his farm.

He leaves his wife, and their daughter Frances and son Charles. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Wilhelm and Mrs. James Monaghan and two brothers, Joe and Lloyd all of Winterset.

The Rev. Arthur Fitzpatrick, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic church conducted his funeral services, at the church, Saturday morning, October 29th, at 10 o’clock and burial was in the Winterset cemetery.
