      THOMAS ALLENDER, 88, ANSWERS LAST CALL
      Brown County lost another of its oldest and best loved citizens Sunday when "Koon" Thomas Henry Allender passed away at the home of his son, Omer Allender, of complications.
      Mr. Allender had been practically a life long resident of the county. Mr. Allender's family grew up in Greasy Creek, but a few years ago moved to Georgetown, where he had since lived. A few weeks ago, when he became ill he was brought to the home of his son here.
      Thomas Henry Allender, son of Thomas Allender and Armellia (Henry) Allender, was born Aug. 15, 1850, and departed from this life Dec. 11, 1938. In 1876 he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Turner, daughter of Dan Turner and Rebecca (McCoy) Turner.
      To this union twelve children were born, five having preceded the parents in death. His wife passed away Dec.21,1937.
      Those left to mourn their loss are four sons, Omer, Bert, Cecil, and Dan, all of this county, three daughters, Mrs. Mary Nett Allison of Columbus, Mrs. Chloe Ford of Franklin and Mrs. Hazel Voland of Nashville; one sister, Mrs. Sarah Duhammel of Indianapolis; one brother, George Allender of Rago, Kansas, the grandchildren, and his many friends.
      Funeral services were conducted at the Georgetown church Monday afternoon by Cecil Deckard and Elza Lucas with interment in the adjoining cemetery. (Bean Blossom Cemetery)
      Pallbearers and flower girls were chosen from the grandchildren. Those attending the funeral from a distance were Mrs. Minnie Hobbs and Mrs. Milla Wagoner of Amity, Mrs. Hazel Spence, Mr. Esther Wolfe, Dolly Duhammel and Mr. and Mrs. Gene Allender, of Indianapolis and Mrs. John Collins of Whiteland.

      Notes of researcher, Delores Julian:
      Marriage license No. 105 of Thomas H. Allender and Elizabeth E. Turner says they were married Aug. 30, 1875 in Nashville, Indiana signed by William L. Cox, clerk and James M. Groves, JP
      The family name of Armellia, was found to be Hendry, instead of Henry. She was daughter of Nicholas Hendry and Mary (Cherry) Hendry.
