George Millar Allan (1860-1902)

Highlights of History from The Whitehorse Star

The Whitehorse Pioneer Cemetery

The Semi-Weekly Star - Saturday, May 3, 1902


    In White Horse at 3:15 a. m. Saturday, May 3rd, 1902, George Miller Allan, a native of Edinburgh, Scotland, aged 42 years. Funeral from the family residence at 2 o'clock p. m. tomorrow.

    Though not unexpected the announcement of Mr. Allan's death was a severe shock to his many friends. For the past six weeks he had been confined to his bed with an aggravated affection of the heart. He appeared to think that if he could only stand the trip to some place of a less altitude than White Horse he might possibly recover and Mrs. Allan had made all preparations to leave for the outside with him this morning, but last night a change for the worse took place and the sufferer continued to sink until the hour above named, when he passed away so quietly that even those who were watching were scarcely aware that the summons had come.

    Mrs. Allan has the heartfelt sympathy of all in her bereavement.
