Salem, Marion Co., OR-Tuesday, 17 May 1910

W.T. Alford, a painter, who was terribly burned in Portland and met death from the accident, was a resident of Salem. Relatives of the dead man reside in South Salem at La Feile and Rock streets.

In speaking of the tragedy a Portland dispatch says:

Injuries from the burning graphite received Friday evening on the roof of the Oregon Wood Distillery company at Linnton caused the death of W.T. Alford, a painter. A spark from the smokestack of the plant ignited the fluid with which he was painting the building. He suffered intense agony.

While on the roof of the distillery with a rope around his waist, one end of which was fastened to the building, he was caught like a rat in a trap. He could not untie the rope and the blaze quickly consumed his clothing. Alford's face, arms and upper part of the body were burned to a crisp. He died Saturday morning at 7 o'clock at the Good Samaritan hospital.

The graphite with which he was spraying the roof of the building is highly inflammable until dried. After that there is no danger. In order to work on the roof, Alford had tied a rope around his waist, and fastened the other end to the roof. When the spark started the fire, he was unable to get away. Harvey Faunalson, another roofer, was nearby, but fell to the ground. Workmen in the distillery finally reached the burning man with ladders and directed a stream of water upon him. Dr. S.M. Mann of Linnton was called, but nothing could be done. The distillery is near the Whitwood Court station on the United Rail ways line.

E.C. Alford, father of the dead man, arrived at the hospital Saturday evening. The body will be removed to Salem for interment.

180 Alymer Jay Allen was the tenth child of Tandy and Joanna Allen. He was born in 1873 on his father
s farm in Cedar Township, near LaGrange in Lucas County, Iowa. By the time he was born, his oldest sister, Carrie, was teaching the local one-room rural school. She and sister Gertrude, having attended college, influenced Alymer to obtain an education and he graduated from Highland Park College in Des Moines, Iowa in 1898 with a major in Science. For three years he taught in Iowa schools, serving as principal at Fontanelle High School one year. In 1899 Alymer returned to farm the home place so that his father , Tandy, could retire to Russell.
In October of that year Alymer and Mabel Werts were married. She was born June 7, 1875 at Russell, IA, eleventh child of John Jackson and Esther Ann Werts. Mabel attended rural school at Ragtown and later completed a course at Parsons Conservatory of Music in Fairfield, IA. She was an excellent pianist and taught piano to private pupils in Russell until her marriage on October 2, 1901 in Russell. After their marriage, Aylmer and Mabel stayed on the Allen farm for only a year before purchasing their own farm a mile from Russell on the State Road (US 34) near Russell Corner where they built a new home in 1910. Aylmer specialized in breeding Chester White hogs, selling them as breeding stock over several states. He showed them at county and stated fairs for several years. In 1916 they sold their farm and purchased the Allen family place from his father, moving on it in 1917. The farm house, first constructed by his father in 1868 before Alymer was born, was remolded and enlarged in 1922. Mabel performed the traditional farm homemaker tasks of washing clothing using a washboard; making soap using homemade lye and animal fats; ironing with sad irons; cooking over an iron range fueled with sticks of wood; churning butter; canning vegetables, fruit, and beef; cleaning with dustcloth, mop, broom and beating rugs; sewing her own clothing and mending the family clothing; patching knees and darning socks; and many other tasks. There was rarely time for rest but they found time for music, reading, and occasional games with the children who were always encouraged to learn. Also, every morning before breakfast without fail, regardless of whatever else the day might bring, they gathered the entire family for a few minutes of Bible reading and prayer. These activities and the memory of them have had considerable influence in the later lives of their children.
Alymer studied accounting by correspondence. In 1927, he rented out the farm and moved his family to Fairfield where their oldest son, Hubert, was attending college. Alymer went into partnership with L. H. Alexander operating an agricultural feed and supply business, but the Great Depression soon led him to sell out and he returned to the farm in 1930. The business experience was costly, and with depressed farm income it took more than a decade of hard work to pay all debts. Returning to the farm, Mabel and Alymer worked, scrimped, and sacrificed through the bad years of the 1930s putting their sons through college.
In 1943 the Allens moved to Russell, leaving the farm to an operator on a share basis. However, Alymer never completely severed his attachment to the family farm, spending hours nearly every day of his retired life back there, mending fences, pulling weeds, and otherwise helping to maintain its value. The farm remained in the Allen family until it was sold in 1977, 124 years after it was homesteaded by Tandy Allen in 1853. Five original land certificates, signed by President Franklin Pierce, are still in the possession of the family.
Both Alymer and Mabel were religious people and were active in the Presbyterian Church. He served as Ruling Elder for at least 30 years and as an Iowa delegate to Presbyterian General Assembly at Indianapolis, IN, in 1923.He was on the Session of the Russell Church continuously for more than 25 years. Mabel taught Sunday Scholl and was active in Missionary and Ladies Aid Societies. Alymer also served as Russell Town Clerk in the early 1950
s, helping to bring a water system to the community. For a number of years, he was President of the Lucas County Sunday School Association. In retirement, the Allens lived across the street from the Russell Community School where their sons had attended high school. Alymer died Nov. 29, 1961 at Chariton, and Mabel lived on in poor health in the Willits Home for elderly women in Chariton and in her daughter Elizabeth
s home in Des Moines until her death Feb. 17, 1973 in her 98th year. Alymer and Mabel are buried, together with many others of both their families, in Russell Cemetery.
