Dawson C Allen - Private   
I suspect that Dawson C Allen may have died in the five years following his enlistment date of 1861. His father was Willson Allen of Hardin Co TN, and he had six brothers, only three of whom are known. It is unknown if he was married. His mothers name was Miriam, surname unknown, although both Miriam and Willson claim to have been born in KY at times. If he lived, he may have gone out West like many other Confederate troops who fought on the 'wrong' side. He may have changed his name if that was the case, because I have been unable to find him these many years of searching.
