ALLEN, SAMUEL H.(1842~1907) Samuel H. Allen, a private in Company F of the 34th Texas Cavalry was born in Illinois in 1842. No further information concerning his early life has been found. Allen came to Texas in 1860 and on February 1, 1862, enlisted in the Confederate Army. The 34th Cavalry Regiment, also called the 2nd Texas Partisan Rangers, were part of the Trans-Mississippi Department, and fought at Spring River, Newtonia, Prairie Grove, Mansfield, Pleasant Hill and Yellow Bayou. It is uncertain if Samuel Allen took part in any of these battles as his service records are incomplete.

Like most of the Confederate Veterans buried at the Texas State Cemetery, Allen entered the Texas Confederate Men‘s Home. On their roster, he listed his occupation as a miller, said he was unmarried, and his religion was Christian Science. He listed his residence, before entering the men‘s home as, Palo Pinto County. Allen also listed an A.L. Ramsey as a correspondent in Strawn, Palo Pinto County, Texas. Their relationship is unknown. Allen entered the home on January 11, 1907 and died only days later on January 28, 1907. He was buried in the Texas State Cemetery.
