      Departed this life, near Manassas Junction, Virginia, on the 14th October, ROBERT ALLAN, aged thirty-seven years and seven months, 2nd Lieutenant of the "Banks County Guards," known as Company A, 2nd Regiment Georgia Volunteers. He died of Typhoid fever, after an illness of thirty-one days. His body was brought to Georgia and interred in the family burying-ground, near the residence of his family, in Banks County. The burial service was performed by the Masonic Fraternity of Phi Delta, with the usual honors. Thus cut down in the prime of life, the Confederate Government has lost a firm and valiant officer   the State of Georgia, one of the foremost to assert her rights in her Legislative Halls. As one of the first to volunteer in her army, his patriotism shines forth in living light. Banks County has been deprived of one of her best and most useful citizens   the Masonic Lodge of a worthy and consistent member   the community of a liberal and public-spirited member   his family of a kind and affectionate husband, a tender and indulgent father. Well may they mourn their irreparable loss. Doubtless the change is his gain. His firm integrity and spotless character are evidences to us that he has passed to the abode of happy spirits, where wars and disease trouble not. C. S. W. Southern Watchman (Athens, Georgia), November 30, 1861
