Thomas married Eula M. Harris, daughter of Isaac Elmer "Ike" Harris and Mary Ellen Stewart, on 20 October 1934 at Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia. O. J. Howearth, Pastor of the Christian Church, certified that he united them in marriage.1

The marriage obviously ended in divorce, as Eula's second marriage took place in 1952 - and Tom was still alive when I was a child.3

Thomas died at age 78 on 9 August 1994.4 Thomas's body was interred in the Fork Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, Fork Ridge Road, Cameron, Marshall County, West Virginia; his name appears on the gravestone as "Thomas M. Allen." The inscription reads, "Our Father Which Art in Heaven."4
