Samuel W. Allender 1860--19??

Surnames: Allender
Samuel W. Allender was born in 1860 in Maryland. His wife's name was Melvina. He was alive in the 1920s, but I do not know his date of death. He lived in St Louis for a long time. He was chief of detectives for the St Louis police department. He was also chief of the Frisco Railroad police. I can only find him in the 1900 and 1910 census for St Louis. He had a son named Samuel E. Allender who worked for Monsanto. I need to find out when and where Samuel W. Allender died. I would like to find his obituary. Thank you so much for your help. Brian
