"Rex Allen" is the unverified name of a male who was either thrown from a train or fell from the train on accident and was struck by it three miles west of Bowie, Arizona at 12:35 AM on August 15, 1951. He suffered extensive injuries, including his left leg being amputated. He was transported to the Willcox City Hospital in Willcox, Arizona where he died nine hours later.

Per his death death certificate it is stated he could be from Marcella, Illinois, despite no city or town having that name in the state. It is possible Marseilles, Illinois is the correct city, but it is misspelled on the death certificate. He was buried at Sunset Cemetery in Willcox on August 20, 1951. Few details are available in his case.
