Dorothea Accola Allamand
February 5, 1845–February 21, 1907
Mrs. Dorothy Allamand, the widow of the late A. Allamand of Bowen's Prairie, died at their home, last Thursday evening, the 21st inst., at the age of 62 years. Mrs. Allamand had been seriously ill since the 29th of December, and had been confined to her bed with an abscess of the stomach. During the past few years of her life the mind of Mrs. Allamand had been clouded. Her son Lorenz and his wife had been very patient with her through all that trying period, and had given her the attention that a mother is always deserving of.
The maiden name of Mrs. Allamand was Dorothy Accola. She was born in Canton Graubunden, Switzerland, February 5th, 1845. She came to America in 1871, and lived for a year in Wisconsin, thence to Monticello, where she was married in December, 1873 to Mr. A. Allamand. They lived at Greeley three years and in Castle Grove 12 years, moving a few years ago to Bowen's Prairie, where Mr. Allamand died late last fall. The deceased was the mother of five children, two only of whom survive. Those deceased are one son and two daughters. The surviving sons are Lorenz Allamand of Bowen's Prairie and Abraham Allamand of Trenton, Missouri. These two sons and one brother of the deceased, Mr. Conrad Accola of Lagrange, Missouri, were present at the funeral, which was conducted at the German Reformed church in Monticello, last Saturday afternoon. The deceased is also survived by three sisters and four brothers, all residents of Switzerland, except two brothers. The remains were laid to rest in Oakwood cemetery.
