Two posthumous Silver Star Citations have been awarded to the late Captain Allyn Capron, First United States Artillery, according to an announcement made yesterday by his son, Major P. A. Capron, United States Marine Corps, of the Marine Barracks at Charleston, South Carolina.

The citations are for gallantry in the Sioux Indian campaign in 1890 and 1891  and in the Spanish-American War.  Captain Capron died three weeks after returning from Cuba from the effects of typhoid fever contracted during the campaign.

The citations have been sent to his widow, Mrs. Agnes K. Capron.

A postmunous Silver Star Citation also has been awarded to Captain A. K. Capron, Seventh United States Cavalry, for gallantry in action at the battle of Las Guasinas, Cuba, June 24, 1898, where he was killed.  The star has been sent to his widow, Mrs. Lillian Capron of Washington, D.C.
