Allen S. Batten died August 18 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Charles Sternburg, aged 70 years and nine days. Death was due to heart disease. Allen Stephen Batten was born in Boston August 9, 1844. Later his parents moved to this place and at the age of 18 he enlisted in Co. C, 3d Vermont and served during the remainder of the war.
After the war Mr. Batten married Mrs. Fannie W. Sawyer of Topsham, and seven children were born to them. Three died in early childhood. Mr. Batten at time held important town offices, acting at one time as town clerk, and in 1902 represented the town in the legislature. November 20, 1908 his wife died, after being an invalid for several years. In August, 1909 he married Mrs. Annie Johnston of Fitchburg, Mass., who, with three daughters and one son, survive him. The children are Mrs. Cora Guptil and Mrs. Daisy Emery of Manchester, N.H., and Mrs. Ernest V. Of Waits River and Mrs. Abbie E. Sternburg of this place. Funeral services were held Thursday at one o'clock, Rev. F. A. Roberts of Williamstown officiating.
Interment was made beside his wife in the cemetery here, where so many of the friends and neighbors of his earlier life preceded him.
