Carr Allen's father (Beverly A. Allen) was born in KY in 1815, so it is likely that Beverly may have been a brother to your Mary Polly Allen. If her father was Carr Allen, he was probably the grandfather of our Carr Allen in AR and our Carr was probably named after him. I have seen information about the KY Carr Allen and tried to connect the families before, but do not have any solid evidence to do so. Here is what I have on the AR, Carr Allen.
Carr W. Allen (Beverly A., ?) was born 03 Aug 1845 in Montgomery Co., AR, and died 15 Aug 1932 in AR.He married (1) Mary Ann Berry 05 Mar 1865 in Scott Co., AR, daughter of Enoch Berry and Elizabeth Tippy?.She was born 27 Mar 1845 in IL, and died 22 May 1919 in Mena, Polk, AR.He married (2) Virginia Hale 21 Oct 1920 in Mena, Polk, AR.She was born Abt. 1851, and died 17 Jan 1931 in AR.
Notes for Carr W. Allen:
Carr was a farmer and a veteran of the Civil War.He joined the Union Army when he was 18 and served as a bugler. He fought in the Battle of Pea Ridge and was with Company E of the 3rd AR Cavalry. He lost a leg and wore a hollow wooden one in which he kept a bottle of liquor according to his great grandaughter, Sybil Condry Jenkins.He homesteaded 40 acres of land in Scott Co., AR (Section 28 of Township 2 North and Range 27 West) on July 15, 1875 at the Dardanelle Land Office. By 1891 when an article was written about him in "Goodspeed", he had sold this land and bought 390 acres at Parks. Later, after 1910, he and Mary Ann moved to Mena in Polk Co., AR.
He was buried in the Duncan cemetery in Waldron beside the grave of his first wife, Mary Ann, and close to several of his children. A grave near his is for John Car Martin Jan. 3, 1906 - April 8, 1945. This may be a grandson or nephew of his.

Virginia was buried at White Oak Cemetery under the name Virginia Hale. The date was Jan. 17, 193_ (probably 1931).
