**It is not known for certain where Thomas Calvin Allen is buried. Notes in the widow's pension file of Fanny Clark Allen indicate that witnesses stated he was mysteriously murdured in Paragould, Greene County, Arkansas, but that his home was in Kentucky at the time of his death in 1899. It is not known what he was doing in Arkansas if in fact he went there, but Paragould was a major railroad town and commerce center at the turn of the century. No headstone has been found for him. It is not known whether his body was brought back to Kentucky.
