            Allan Egbert was born on the 13th of April 1921 to the John and Evaline Egbert family  living in Kaycee, Wyoming.  The family consisted of two older sons: Clifford and Emmett.  Later a brother Nelson joined the family of boys.  Allan enlisted in WW II as a private and was a Private First Class at discharge.  Some of his life was spent in Colorado and some of it in Walla Walla, Washington.   A marriage is reported of 24 October 1975, College Place, Walla Walla, to Mary Luana Jordan.  He died September 29, 2012 at the age of 90 in Pendleton, Umatilla County, Oregon.

OTHER:  one source indicates that Allan died on September 30, 2012; some censuses donŐt list Allen.   I know the family was well known in the Ten Sleep area.  John Egbert (also buried in T.S.) had brothers David and Brooks Egbert living nearby.  I recall the family were of the Adventist faith[1], partly through Cora Nicholson, the second wife of John Egbert; however, EvalineŐs funeral in 1932 is noted in the Worland newspaper as being held at the Ten Sleep Methodist Church.


Note:  Mary Luana Jordan, it is believed, is the former Mary Greet from upper Nowood.

[1] Mrs. Cora Nicholson was of the Adventist Faith and Clifford Egbert married her grand-daughter Bessie Jacobs who was of that faith.
