About Allen P Shuey

1 Mar 1937: The Civil War ranks of Lebanon are continuing to thin out. Allen P. Shuey, aged 89 years, 1 month and 3 days, of 120 North Seventh Street, died at his home Saturday evening at 6:45 o'clock. Death was attributed to a complication of diseases after an illness of eight weeks. Mr. Shuey was a retired school teacher and also was Justice of the Peace in Union Township for many years. He was a member of St. Johns Reformed Church, and assisted in organizing St. Stephens Reformed Church, being one of its elders. He enlisted in the United States Army when he was fifteen years old, and served two enlistments. He first enlisted in Company I, 26th Penna. Volunteer Militia, under Captain Greenawalt. In July 1863, Shuey was discharged after the Battle of Gettysburg. On August 31, 1864, he re-enlisted, this time in Company K, 209th Regiment. During a raid into North Carolina, the Sergeant of his company was taken sick, and Shuey carried the Regimental Flag. He was seized with fever and not being able to ride in the ambulance when he could march no longer, he lay down in the snow on the sunny side of a hill where he fell asleep. When found, Allen Shuey was so badly frozen that it was necessary to amputate eight of his toes, and four fingers of his right hand. He was unconscious for an entire month from the time he fell asleep on the hill. At the expiration of his service, he was taken to a hospital in Philadelphia. After he was able to walk again, Mr. Shuey went to school in Millersville, Myerstown, Mercersburg, and left Franklin & Marshall College when he was in his sophomore year. He taught school for several years, and read law for for some time with the late Judge A.H. Ehrgood and his father. Later he served as a clerk in the New York Commision. He married Blanche Rhen, and was engaged in farming near Walmers Church. He later conducted a store near Green Point. After the death of his brother, J. of P. Ephraim B. Shuey, he was elected to that office, and during this period he surveyed many miles of land in the northern region of Lebanon County. In 1906 he moved to Lebanon and for some years served as weighmaster for the American Iron and Steel Company in Lebanon. Survivors are his wife Blanche; and the following children: Landis Shuey, Schuylkill Haven; Hiram Shuey, of Hummelstown; Perry Shuey, of Lebanon; Mrs. Daniel Strouphar, of Annville Route 2; Lester Shuey, of Lebanon; Lester Shuey, of Lebanon; Wayne Shuey, of Avon; Webster Shuey, of Lebanon; Mrs. Thomas Clark, of Lebanon; Nevin and Alverta, at home; Mrs. Raymond Behney, of Cambridge, Mass; twenty two grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Interment to be in the Walmers Church Cemetery. [Lebanon Daily News]
