Capt. Allyn Capron
     Allyn Capron was born on 27 August 1846 in Tampa, Hillsborough, Florida.1 He married Agnes Kissam circa 1869.1 Allyn Capron died on 18 September 1898 at age 52 in Ft Meyer, Arlington, Virginia.2 He obituary reads " CAPT. ALLYN CAPRON DEAD
The Last of a Long Line of Warriors Passes Away.
HIS SON KILLED IN CUBA
The Father It Was Who Opened the Fight at El Caney - He Stood Close Up to the Guns and Avenged the Death of His Boy - His Life Seemed Charmed.
Another prominent military figure in the war with Spain has passed away.
Capt. Allyn Capron, sr., commander of Light Battery E, First Artillery, died about noon yesterday at his home, near
Fort Myer, Va., on the heights overlooking West Washington.
The death of the gallant captain, coming so close upon that of Gen. Haskell, caused his brother officers at the fort and in the War Department quite a shock. Capt. Capron had been confined to his home about three weeks. The germs of disease entered his system while he was undergoing the hardships and exposure of the campaign in Santiago, and he was not well when he returned to this country. Added to the other unfavorable conditions was his grief over the death of his son, Capt. Allyn Capron, jr., who was shot down while bravely leading his company of Rough Riders in the fight at La Guasimas.
Capt. Capron, like many of the other heroes of the Cuban campaign, came home weakened and disease ridden, and fell an easy victim to fever, which resulted in his death. The War Department officials were not informed last night as to the nature of the fatal malady, but is was stated at Fort Myer that his death resulted from typhoid fever.
Capt. Capron was a native of Florida. He entered the Military Academy at West Point as a cadet on September 1,
1863, and received his commission as lieutenant in the army upon graduation. He was an honor graduate of the artillery
school in 1873, and had been captain of Light Battery E, First Artillery, since December 4, 1888. He was fifty-one years of age.
It was the battery commanded by Capt. Capron, senior, which opened the fight at El Caney, and his men declare that he kept his guns hot until the Spaniards were driven pell mell from their breastworks. This was at 6:15 o'clock on the morning of July 1.
Capt. Capron's son had been killed six days before at the head of bis company of Rough Riders in the ambuscade, or
"hornets' nest" at La Guasimas, and the father thought of his dead boy, his gunners said, when he ordered them to
"work quick and make every shot tell."
The death of Capt. Capron, jr., preyed upon the father's mind and he was morose ever afterwards and always anxious
to get his battery into a fight, himself standing close up to the guns and taking chances with his men. But he appeared to have a charmed life, the Mauser bullets whizzing harmlessly past his erect form, leaving him to fall a victim to the deadly Cuban typhoid.
When the President was informed of Capt. Capron's death last night he expressed his sorrow and said the captain was a brave soldier, an honor to his country, and a gentleman.
The Capron family has figured prominently in every war since the Revolution. There was a Gen. Capron who fought under Washington, and his sons to the present generation have been identified with the American army. (from the Washington Times, Sept. 19, 1898)."3 He was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Arlington, Virginia.3
     He was also known as Capt. Allyn Capron. He appeared on the census of 1850 at Washington, District of Columbia, as the son of the head of the household, Harriet Read Fanning Barnard.4 Allyn Capron appeared on the census of 1860 in at Washington, District of Columbia, as the step-son of the head of the household, Charles Vinson.5 During his Military Service he: Allyn Capron of Florida

     Biographical Notes for Allyn Capron: From NY Times Obit 19 Sept. 1898

Capt. Capron was appointed to West Point from North Carolina in 1863. He was commissioned 17 June 1867 in the 1st Artillery. Stayed with the same battery until 1871 when he was transferred to the Signal Corp at Fort Whipple, VA. In 1873 he was promoted to 1st Lt. and to Capt. in 1888. He served several years duty in the Dept. of California.

While participating in the battle for Sevilla Heights during the campaigns in Cuba he received word of his son's death during the same action. He never swerved and his battery did excellent work. He returned to Ft. Meyer, VA after the surrender.

He died from the effects of typhoid fever contracted during the campaigns in Cuba.

The town of Virgel, OK was renamed Capron, OK in his honor on Feb 20, 1899. He was at one time the Commander of the Territorial Guard in Oklahoma.

From the Arlington National Cemetery website:
During the Spanish-American War, he accompanied General Shafter's army to Cuba. On July 1, 1898, he led Shafter's advance and fired the first shot of the battle. The Spanish flag on the Fort at El Caney was carried away by a shot from his Battery E. Exposure in the Santiago Campaign resulted in his contracting Typhoid Fever from which he died at Fort Myer, Virginia, September 18, 1898. He lies in Section 1 of Arlington National Cemetery among other family members and next to his father, Erastus A. Capron. on 19 September 1898.8,1
