war broke out though still very young he enlisted in Co. D. 60th O. V. I. and
served faithfully. He was united in marriage with Miss Rosa Anna Podesta
of Vicksburg, Miss., on June 28, 1883, and for a number of years they resided in
that city he being with the "Isaquenna," a well known river boat which
plyed on the lower Mississippi. They removed to Troy several years ago and
for a number of years Mr. Boone was the energetic local agent of a number of
daily papers. During his stay in this city he has gained the reputation of
being an honest straight-forward man and had made many friends. He was a
member of Coleman Post G. A. R. Besides his wife there survive him three
children, Joseph Emmett Boone, of the U. S. Navy and stationed at Washington, D.
C., John Tanner Boone, connected with the Detroit Electrical company and Miss
